A former police officer in a small northwest Missouri town admits that he took money several times from an evidence room.

Country Club Village officer Dustin Kirschner pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony attempted stealing. He was sentenced to three years' probation.

His attorney said Kirschner paid restitution of about $4,100 shortly after the investigation began.

The St. Joseph News-Pressreports Kirschner took money from the department's evidence room between 12 and 25 times from July 2007 to February 2013.
