BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A former pharmacy worker who pleaded guilty to stealing painkillers from an American Indian hospital in North Dakota has been sentenced to three years of supervised release and 50 hours of community service.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says 28-year-old Timothy Davis Jr. also was given credit for the one day he spent in custody. He will spend six months in a Mandan halfway house and then be on home confinement for a year with electronic monitoring for six months. He also will have to pay nearly $5,800 in restitution.

Davis was accused of manipulating inventory while working at the Quentin N. Burdick Memorial Hospital in Belcourt. Authorities say nearly 50,000 hydrocodone pills were reported missing between May 2009 and June 2010.

The case was the basis of a congressional investigation.
