WACO, Texas (AP) - Prosecutors say an ex-business manager for a nonprofit Central Texas arts group must serve two years in federal prison for stealing $1.3 million from the volunteers-led organization.

Aileen Denise Snyder was sentenced Wednesday in Waco. Snyder must also repay $470,000 for what investigators say involved nearly 700 unauthorized ATM withdrawals from a Temple Civic Theatre account.

Prosecutors say Snyder, who pleaded guilty to access device fraud, spent the money gambling, traveling and paying personal bills.

The Temple Daily Telegram (https://bit.ly/2paGNwl ) reports Snyder worked for the group from mid-2006 until her May 2014 firing. Theater officials described unexplained missing funds, including a $25,000 dip in one month.

Investigators say Snyder, who was arrested in Washington County, Utah, was the only person with access to and login information for the online bank account.
