WOODBURY, N.J. (AP) - A former fire association treasurer who admitted stealing from the organization has been spared a prison term but must pay back more than $174,000.

Richard Conway was sentenced Friday to five years of probation. He had pleaded guilty to theft.

Gloucester County prosecutors say the 52-year-old Conway stole money from the Woodbury Heights Improvement, Protective and Fire Association over the course of several years. They say he deposited checks from the Gloucester County association into his personal bank account between 2010 and 2016

Authorities have not said how the crime went undetected for several years or how Conway used the money.
