ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A 39-year-old Arizona woman has been placed on probation for five years and ordered to pay $4,800 of restitution and perform 40 hours of community service for stealing from her employer on part of the Navajo Indian Reservation in northwestern New Mexico.

Sabrina Morgan of Jeddito, Arizona, was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Albuquerque after pleading guilty April 26 to one count of larceny in the theft from the Red Mesa Trading Co. Inc.

A March 14 indictment said Morgan said district supervisor for the business located in Naschitti when she committed the crime in April 2012.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for New Mexico says Morgan pleaded guilty without the benefit of a plea agreement.
