SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A veteran San Francisco police officer who was convicted of stealing money and property from criminal suspects has been sentenced to more than three years in federal prison.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1B32X1G) U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer on Wednesday sentenced former police officer Edmond Robles to 39 months in prison and ordered him to pay a $25,000 fine.

A jury convicted the 46-year-old Robles and his former supervisor, Sgt. Ian Furminger, in December of stealing thousands of dollars found during searches involving drug dealers and their homes.

A third officer, Reynaldo Vargas, pleaded guilty to similar charges and testified against the other two. The officers were fired following their convictions.
