The man who threw a video camera into a police cruiser in San Francisco last month and stole it, prosecutors said, was sentenced to two years in prison.
The judge in San Leandro County Superior Court on Friday sentenced 26-year-old Robert Lee Buechner to two and a half years in jail.
Buechener, of San Francisco, was arrested Feb. 9 after he climbed into a patrol car at the San Leandre Bridge and stole a police camera from the dashcam of a police vehicle, prosecutors wrote in court papers.
The San Leanne Police Department said Buechukner, who is also a firefighter, was driving a blue and white 2008 Nissan Sentra sedan with California license plates when he broke the windows of the police car, causing the dashboard to roll forward.
Buechcher was arrested in San Rafael in February after he left a San Leantha store on his way to a party.
Buesaver was ordered to pay $1,400 in restitution, court papers said.
Buechechner, a married father of two, had been working as a firefighter since 2008.
He is the brother of San LeAnn Police Department Capt. David Buechtner, according to a criminal complaint.
