TUC­SON — Au­thor­i­ties say a for­mer book­keeper for the Ari­zona Con­fer­ence of Po­lice and Sher­iffs has been sen­tenced to three years in prison and seven years of pro­ba­tion for steal­ing from her for­mer em­ployer.

The Ari­zona At­tor­ney Gen­eral’s Of­fice an­nounced Tues­day that Mary McNabb pleaded guilty to one count of theft and one count of fraud­u­lent schemes and ar­ti­fices.

Pima County Su­pe­rior Court Judge Janet Bost­wick also or­dered the 62-year-old McNabb to pay nearly $228,000 in resti­tu­tion.

AZCOPS con­tacted Tuc­son po­lice af­ter dis­cov­er­ing sus­pi­cious book­keep­ing pay­ments.

Po­lice started an in­ves­ti­ga­tion and dis­cov­ered McNabb is­sued more than $195,000 in false pay­ments to her­self dur­ing her two years work­ing for AZCOPS from 2012-14.

Pros­e­cu­tors say credit card state­ments in­di­cate McNabb used the money to pay for per­sonal ex­penses such as din­ner and shop­ping.
