A former employee of the Passamaquoddy Tribe at Pleasant Point in Maine pleaded guilty to theft.

Stephen E. Crawford, 68, admitted he took about $25,000 while serving as the tribe's environmental director. When he was fired in February 2012, he told The Bangor Daily News that he lost his job because he was not a tribal member but it turns out he was under investigation for the theft.

Crawford faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, the paper reported.
