ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A former employee of Sandia National Labs will serve three years of probation and pay restitution to the government in a theft case stemming from her use of a procurement card to make unauthorized purchases.

Theresa Romero was sentenced Friday in federal court in Albuquerque. She pleaded guilty July 1 to theft of government property.

In addition to being placed on probation, the 34-year-old Albuquerque resident was ordered to pay $32,542 of restitution to the National Nuclear Security Administration.

As part of her plea agreement, Romero agreed to forfeit numerous items seized by federal agencies.

Those included a stove, a comforter, sheets, a DVD player, a wet-dry vacuum, two BlackBerry phones, tennis shoes and numerous pieces of clothing, including Zumba pants.
