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.
