A former Bay County deputy has been sentenced in a theft case.

Stephen Keys is a former Bay County Sheriffs Office narcotics investigator. The sheriff's office reports that after setting up a sting of their own, Keys was caught stealing money from drug dealers during their arrest. He was arrested Feb. 1.

Keys has pleaded no contest to grand theft and told a judge that concealed $850 from his supervisors.

He has been sentenced to five years probation and has to perform one-thousand hours of community service work. But he could pay up to $5,000 instead of going through half those hours.

Keys must also write a letter of apology to run in The News Herald and pay $15,000 in restitution to the sheriff's and state attorney's offices.
