VAN BUREN, Ind. — A former Van Buren firefighter will avoid jail time after stealing money from the department.

William “Bill” Wentz, 45, pleaded guilty last month to 12 counts of theft, admitting that he stole money from the Van Buren Volunteer Fire Department. He used the money for personal use, which included a veterinarian payment, the purchase of a firearm and a Verizon telephone bill.
