TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- A Topeka man who once owned more than 170 properties in the area had his case upgraded to a felony Wednesday.

A criminal docket hearing is set for December 17th for Kent Lindemuth.

The states motion was granted to amend charges against him from a misdemeanor to a felony.

Lindemuth is facing criminal deprivation of property.

A March court document states Lindemuth illegally and intentionally obtained or exerted unauthorized control over property that wasn't his own.
