CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A 21-year-old Casper man has pleaded guilty to stealing $48,000 from a safe at a credit union where his mother worked.

Kevin Walsh pleaded guilty Friday robbing the Family First Credit Union in Casper on June 14. A plea agreement recommends he participate in a boot camp program meant. A sentencing date has not been set.

Prosecutors alleged Walsh used his mother’s key to enter the building and that he knew the safe’s code from previous observations and because it hadn’t been changed from the simple code set by the manufacturer.

Walsh said he took the money to help his family. Court records said he became a suspect when police learned he planned to buy a $20,000 car.

Investigators recovered all but $260 of the missing money in the crawl space under Walsh’s home.
