A former firefighter has been sentenced for theft and charged in a separate case of arson.
Thaddeus Austin of Palmyra was a volunteer firefighter and treasurer for the Hershey Fire Company. Police said he stole $130,000 from the fire department.
Austin was sentenced Thursday to at least a year behind bars for that theft. Then, Swatara Township police charged him with arson. They said he set a fire that damaged a UPS terminal back in March.
