LECLAIRE, Iowa (AP) - The former president of a volunteer fire association in eastern Iowa has been given probation for stealing from it.

The Quad-City Times reports (https://bit.ly/1YVr4fp ) that Shawn Ream was given a deferred judgment Thursday and ordered to pay more than $3,900 in restitution to the LeClaire Firefighters Association. Under a deferred judgment, Ream’s record will be cleared if he successfully completes the terms of his two-year probation. If Ream violates probation, he could face up to five years in prison.

Court documents say suspicious transactions on the association’s bank account were made between November 2014 and June. The documents say Ream told police on July 1 that he used the money to buy gasoline, groceries and medication, among other purchases.
