KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A third member of a Kansas City, Kan., police unit has been sentenced to eight months in federal prison for stealing electronics from houses during searches.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says 34-year-old Dustin Sillings also has to serve one year of supervised release for violating a federal civil rights law. He was sentenced Thursday.

Sillings and two other members of the Police Department's Selective Crime Occurrence Reduction Enforcement Unit were charged after a sting operation in January 2011. Thirty-two-year-old Darrell M. Forrest has been sentenced to 12 months and a day in prison, and 34-year-old Jeffrey M. Bell was sentenced earlier to eight months behind bars.

Sillings admitted stealing $340 in cash from the sting house and five or six video games during other searches.
