WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A former Northborough police officer has been placed on probation and ordered to pay more than $25,000 in restitution after pleading guilty to stealing the money form the patrolman's union while serving as its president.

Nathan Fiske Sr. of Holden was sentenced Monday to three years of probation and 1,000 hours of community service after pleading guilty to larceny. He was also ordered not to apply for any job in law enforcement.

Prosecutors say the 34-year-old Fiske stole the money between December 2009 and March to pay for a trip to Las Vegas, a tattoo and Registry of Motor Vehicles fees.

Fiske resigned in June.

The Telegram & Gazette (http://bit.ly/1irBKl5 ) reports that his lawyer says the money will be rapid within two weeks and his client is remorseful.
