A former Derby city employee has been charged with burglarizing the police evidence room over a two-month period earlier this year.

Frank L. Sneller, 29, was formally charged in Sedgwick County District Court on Aug. 29 with burglary, theft, forgery and official misconduct. He made his first appearance in court on Sept. 19 and is now set for a preliminary hearing on Oct. 3.

He has been released on a $10,000 bond.

Sneller, who worked as an operations technician for the city, is accused of seven counts of burglary of the police evidence room. The court complaint shows he used a key card, forged in a police department sergeant’s name, to enter the room on seven occasions between March 12 and April 27.

The complaint also says he took prescription drugs from the evidence room on March 12 and April 27. In addition, he is charged with taking prescription pills from another city employee on Jan. 25.

The official misconduct charge stems from the use of confidential information on the day he allegedly forged the key card.
