A former administrator of the Bluefield, Virginia Rescue Squad is sentenced Tuesday in federal court for embezzlement.
Thomas Carroll was sentenced to 45 months in federal prison plus four years of supervised release.
He must also pay more than $204,000 in restitution including nearly $177,000 to the Bluefield Virginia Rescue Squad and more than $14,400 to BB&T bank.
The embezzlement occurred between January of 2008 and June of 2011.
Carroll was indicted on March of 2012.
The investigation revealed misuse of multiple credit cards, adjustment of pay without proper approval and obtaining a loan using rescue squad equipment as collateral.
The rescue squad has recently been in danger of closing, after operating in the red for months.
Actions taken by county and town officials allowed the doors to remain.
