BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A fourth person has been sentenced in a case that involved thousands of painkillers stolen from an American Indian hospital on the Turtle Mountain reservation in North Dakota.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says 25-year-old Jordan Delong of Belcourt was put on supervised release for three years Monday and ordered to pay about $5,800 in restitution. Delong pleaded guilty in May to trying to profit from the pills.

Former pharmacy worker Timothy Davis Jr. was sentenced earlier to probation, community service and restitution for stealing the painkillers from the Quentin N. Burdick Hospital in Belcourt. His wife, Candace Keplin, was sentenced to probation and restitution for trying to profit from the pills. John Allery was sentenced for that and other drug charges and given about two years in prison and restitution.
