Thursday, March 8, 2012 A former Uniontown fire chief and his estranged wife were convicted on Wednesday of theft and conspiracy connected with $16,990 in fraudulent unemployment claims.

Prosecutors said the couple collected $16,990 in unemployment benefits on behalf of Myron Nypaver between March 6, 2010, and Oct, 2, 2010. The former chief was ineligible to receive them because he was working, according to trial testimony.
