CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Two men have been sentenced for their roles in a scheme to steal tactical flashlights from the Virginia Army National Guard.
 
30-year-old Michael Wayne Tutwiler of Mechanicsville will serve six months in prison. James Tucker Creamer of Amherst County will spend one year on probation and pay a $500 fine.
 
    
Tutwiler and Creamer were sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Charlottesville. They pleaded guilty in February.
 
    
Prosecutors say the men participated in a scheme with several other Guard members to steal the weapons-mounted flashlights. The thefts occurred from September 2007 to April 2008 while the soldiers were deployed to Iraq.
 
    
A co-defendant, John Robert Watkins, is scheduled to be sentenced July 23.
