BRIDGEPORT, Neb. (AP) - A former Morrill County veterans service officer has been given probation and jail time for stealing from his agency’s account.

Morrill County District Court records say 32-year-old Devin Heumesser was sentenced Monday to a year of probation and 30 days in jail, with credit for 15 days already served. He’d pleaded guilty to four misdemeanor counts of theft.

An arrest affidavit says that following Heumesser’s firing last year, the acting veterans service officer reported his suspicion that funds had been stolen from the office’s checking account. The Nebraska State Patrol found 45 questionable withdrawals totaling more than $17,000.
