DERBY, Kansas (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.

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.
