MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - A former fire chief and his wife have received probation for using a Marshall County volunteer fire department’s funds to buy personal items.

Media outlets report that Donald and Marsha McCloud each pleaded guilty last week to fraudulent use of a credit card. In addition to one year of probation, they each received a six-month suspended sentence.

Donald McCloud is a former chief of the Washington Lands Volunteer Fire Department. Prosecutors say the McClouds used the fire department’s credit card to buy nearly $25,000 worth of groceries, music downloads and other personal items.

The couple was charged in 2013.
