A former Elko County ambulance employee has been given five years probation on her conviction of attempted theft.
Cathy Kolsch was convicted by a jury in February.
Authorities said she stole about $2,000 when she worked as a service biller and emergency medical technician from 1996 through 2004.
She was sentenced Monday by Elko District Judge Andrew Puccinelli, who also imposed a suspended sentence of one year to 32 months.
Prosecutors said the theft was discovered after someone brought in a receipt for a bill, though the payment was not recorded.
An investigation found other transactions that could not be accounted for.
