SALT LAKE CITY — A former Utah firefighter has been fined $1,300 and sentenced to three years’ probation for breaking into a fire station and stealing narcotics from an ambulance.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports 21-year-old Brenden Ivie pleaded guilty in 4th District Court to three counts of burglary, two counts of theft and two counts of possession or use of a controlled substance.
Ivie was a part-time firefighter with Unified Fire Authority and the Lone Peak Fire District before he was arrested earlier this month in connection with a series of break-ins last summer at the Pleasant Grove Fire Department.
The narcotics stolen included morphine and fentanyl.
Additional counts were dropped as part of a plea bargain and the judge suspended any prison time.
