Matthew John Bush, of Parsons, was charged with one count of Petit Larceny. According to the complaint, on Monday, June 27 at approximately 1 p.m. Patrolman N.C. Gidley was approached by Interim Administrator, Aggie Arnold, in regards to a utility issue in Parsons. Business Office Coordinator Mistee Griffith had received a phone call from an unknown female asking about what was needed for a new water service. When asked what the address for the service was the female stated the address. She informed her of the amount and the female then stated that the water at the residence was supposed to be turned off, however the owner had turned the water back on without permission.
The residence listed above is a two story apartment style building with a lower garage owned by Matthew Bush. Water service at this residence was previously under the care of a former resident, and on Feb. 25, 2022, the water service was shut off as the resident moved. Per Administrator Arnold; Matthew Bush requested that the water service be left on as another individual was planning to move into that residence, however due to an overdue utility bill from Bush and the other individual, the water service had been shut off.
A work order dated for Feb. 25, 2022 shows that the City Water Department shut off the water service to that residence with a meter reading of 116.3.
On June 27, 2022, following the above call, the City Water Department was asked to check the meter and it was discovered that the meter was indeed turned on the meter was showing a reading of 122.8.
