BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - A Bay City commissioner who was convicted of a misdemeanor for putting a neighbor’s lawn mower, grill and fire pit on the curb has been sentenced to probation.

Chad Sibley says he simply made a mistake last April. He says he moved the items to the curb for pickup because of safety concerns. The previous owner of the home lost the property because of unpaid taxes but still had permission to recover her possessions.

The Bay City Times reports (https://bit.ly/1NazX0T ) that Sibley, a Bay City commissioner since 2011, also was sentenced on Tuesday to $900 in fines and costs. He was convicted last month of larceny less than $200. He’s seeking re-election in November.
