MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - A judge has sentenced a retired Delaware County sheriff’s deputy to six months home detention after he pleaded guilty to selling more than $8,000 in county-owned ammunition.

U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt also sentenced 56-year-old Arlan Johnson of Muncie to three years of probation Thursday and ordered him make restitution of $8,500.

Johnson, who was a lieutenant and a firearms instructor, said in court that he wanted “to apologize to everybody” for letting them down.

Johnson was accused of stealing the ammunition between January 2012 and Aug. 5, 2015, a month before he retired, and selling it online and in person. Authorities say he accumulated more than $100,000 in gambling losses.
