A July trial has been scheduled for a former Sioux City high school band director accused of stealing school instruments.

Online court records say 39-year-old Kevin Massey, of Sergeant Bluff, will go on trial July 23. He's pleaded not guilty to felony theft.

Massey has resigned from his job at North High School and has agreed to pay $5,000 in restitution to the school district.

School officials became aware of the matter after another teacher shopping for musical instruments online noticed some that looked familiar.

Sioux City police say Massey took the instruments to cover gambling debts. Police have recovered more than five dozen instruments from three pawn shops.
