DERBY, Kan. (AP) -- A Derby city employee is accused of stealing from the city's police department.
The Sedgwick County District Attorney's office has charged 29-year-old Frank Sneller, of Derby, with 11 counts, including felony theft, felony burglary and official misconduct. The items allegedly stolen included prescription drugs.
Sneller is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Oct. 3.
Prosecutors allege Sneller, an operations technician for the city, used a fake ID with the name "Sergeant Joe Smith" to get access to the evidence.
KAKE reports (http://bit.ly/1fly43L ) that Police Chief Robert Lee said the city won't comment on Sneller's case because it is under investigation.
It was not immediately clear if Sneller had an attorney.
