WICHITA, Kansas – The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a report that a Sedgwick County resident stole as much as $8,000 worth of electricity over nearly seven years.

Deputies went to the address where the alleged theft occurred.
They found that a hole had been drilled in the meter, and a wire had been inserted to keep it from running.
