WICHITA, Kan. (AP)-- The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Department says someone stole thousands of dollars in equipment and 559 gallons of gas from the county's maintenance facility. It's the fifth time the plant has been broken into since last March.

The sheriff's office says the latest theft occurred sometime during last weekend.

The loss was estimated at more than $16,000, with another $1,300 in damage.

The thieves used a tractor to move concrete barriers to get into the property. They stole generators, saws, nailers, a flat-bed truck and the gas.

KWCH reports investigators aren't sure if the thefts are related. No arrests have been made in any of the cases.
