Former Kansas Fire Chief Pleads Guilty to Felony Theft

SOLDIER, Kan. (AP) — The Jackson County attorney says a former fire chief in northeast Kansas has pleaded guilty to theft and agreed to pay restitution.  The Topeka Capital-Journal reports 45-year-old Ryan L. White was set to stand trial Thursday but has entered a guilty plea for one count of felony theft. White, a former fire chief in Soldier, had been charged with two felony counts of theft and five counts of misdemeanor theft.  White was accused of writing a Soldier Ball Association check in the amount of almost $1,500 to his own business account in October 2012. He also was accused of writing another ball association check in the amount of around $1,300 in December 2012.  The sheriff's office began an investigation after discrepancies were found in the association's accounting.
