PHOENIX — Former Phoenix Suns player Richard Dumas avoided jail time in his burglary case after agreeing to a plea deal.

A judge sentenced Dumas to three years of supervised probation on Monday.

Authorities said Dumas stole about $800 worth of merchandise from the Luke Air Force Base’s exchange store while working with a janitorial service in 2012.

They said Dumas was seen on store surveillance cameras taking cigarettes, alcohol, food, DVDs and shoes.

Dumas originally pleaded not guilty to eight felony charges of organized retail theft. He later reached the plea agreement.

Dumas played for the Suns from 1992 to 1995 and helped the team reach the NBA Finals in 1993. He was waived by the team after missing a drug test.
