SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A western Iowa man has been sentenced to three years of probation for stealing nearly $15,000 from cash registers at Fleet Farm store in Sioux City.

Robert Smith, 22, of Bronson, received the sentence Tuesday after pleading guilty to a single count of first-degree theft, the Sioux City Journal reported. Smith was also ordered to pay $14,805 in restitution to Fleet Farm.

Prosecutors said Smith began taking cash from a register at the store on Sept. 30, 2018, shortly after the store opened, and continued to take money from registers on a daily basis. He was arrested Nov. 19, 2018.
