ASHTON, Idaho (AP) An eastern Idaho mayor has been sentenced to six months of unsupervised probation and fined about $300 for entering an unoccupied home to repossess a refrigerator with one of the city's police officers present.

The Post Register reports (http://bit.ly/2wYaciM) that Ashton Mayor Teddy Stronks received the sentence last week after pleading guilty to misdemeanor unlawful entry.

Stronks owns Stronks and Sons Appliance and has been the mayor of Ashton for 16 years.

Authorities say Stronks consulted Ashton City Attorney Sam Angell about repossessing the refrigerator and arrived at the residence on Aug. 10 with Ashton Police Officer Wes Owens present on the orders of Police Chief Greg Griffel.

Owens says Stronks told him he had permission to enter the home.

The homeowners say they never granted permission.
