INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The former fire chief of an Indianapolis suburb has pleaded guilty to stealing town funds.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry announced Monday that former Speedway Fire Chief Mark Watson pleaded guilty to the theft of about $58,000.

Under terms of the plea agreement, Watson received a two-year prison sentence and has paid the full amount in restitution to the town.

Watson is also to pay restitution to the State Board of Accounts for the costs associated with an audit conducted by the agency.

Watson was Speedway’s fire chief from June 2010 until his resignation in October 2014.
