PITTSBURGH (AP) — An Alabama grandmother has been sentenced to a year on probation, ending a bizarre federal court case in which a western Pennsylvania trucker enlisted her and two others to help him hide a small fortune he found in an elderly man's garage.

Forty-eight-year-old David Lamer, and his wife, Roxanne, were sentenced to federal prison last year for their role in a conspiracy to hide the money from the Internal Revenue Service. Lamer was hired by an elderly man's family to clean out a garage in 2007 and found more than $390,000 hidden in coffee cans.

Lamer tried to avoid paying income taxes by funneling the money through his wife and two friends, including 70-year-old Linda Reed, who was sentenced Monday to a year's probation by a federal judge in Johnstown.
