PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - A retired Jackson County deputy has pleaded guilty to selling sheriff’s department equipment to a pawn shop.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/28IG5l4) Alexander Kieper Jr. pleaded guilty Friday to embezzlement. Judge Dale Harkey set a July 8 sentencing.

Authorities say Kieper sold high-end equipment for weapons, including two gun scopes, two gun-scope lenses, two tripods and a pair of binoculars, at Dad’s Super Pawn in Gulfport in June 2015.

He told the judge he needed $200 to pay his rent or he was going to be evicted.
