The former Eagle fire chief has pleaded guilty to theft and misconduct charges.

Kurtis Vogel and his wife Hope were accused of stealing more than 1$20,000 from the city of Sterling during his time as fire chief there.

Vogel told investigators he and his wife had set up an account for Sterling firefighters, but used the money for personal expenses like appliances and a bicycle.

A judge will sentence Kurtis in February.

Hope will appear in court in January.
