ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A former manager of an Albuquerque Goodwill store is going to federal prison for lighting a fire to conceal his embezzlement.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for New Mexico says 39-year-old Daniel Edward Aaron Morgan was sentenced Thursday afternoon to a year and a day for making an incendiary device.

Prosecutors say Morgan will also have to serve two years of supervised release and repay the stolen money to Goodwill.

According to authorities, Morgan embezzled more than $2,000 from the store.

They say he set a bank deposit bag on fire before placing it inside a U.S. Bank night deposit box.

Officials say there was not enough flammable material to set the bank on fire.

Morgan was convicted of violating federal firearms laws.
