MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) -- A former reserve deputy has been sentenced to more than two years in prison for stealing weapons from the Cherokee nation Marshal Service.
The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma says 33-year-old Mark Allen Cummins Jr. of Tahlequah was sentenced Friday to 27 months in prison. Cummins was also ordered to pay $3,600 in restitution to the Cherokee Nation Marshal Service.
Cummins was charged in March 2011 and later pleaded guilty to possession of stolen firearms.
Prosecutors say stole and sold the weapons while he worked for the marshal service as a reserve deputy.
