Ex-Ga. police officer pleads guilty to burglary

Posted: Updated:

NEWNAN, Ga. (AP) - A former Newnan police officer accused of burglarizing a child care center while he was on duty has been sentenced to probation.

The Newnan Times-Herald reports 40-year-old Zachery Anderson admitted to breaking into All Stars Academy last November during a night patrol shift to steal tuition money and petty cash from the office.

Coweta County Assistant District Attorney Kaitlin Doyle says Anderson's wife worked at the daycare center. Anderson was fired from the department after his wife filed a protective order against him and told authorities about the burglary.

Newnan Police Chief Douglas Meadows says Anderson worked for the department for five years.

Anderson is ordered to serve eight years of probation and undergo a psychological evaluation.
