Accused of stealing water

6 Jul, 2015

The Calleguas Municipal Water District in Ventura County sues Selleck, claiming a tanker truck filled up at a hydrant more than a dozen times and hauled water to a 60-acre ranch owned by the actor in Westlake Village. Selleck has not complied with cease-and-desist letters aimed at halting the unlawful water deliveries. The water district is seeking reimbursement for court costs, the $22,000 it paid a private investigator, as well as a preliminary and permanent injunction barring Selleck and his contractors or employees from taking water from the district.

Our policies have been on the books for decades. We just want any such activity to stop — that is the bottom line for us. It’s really about doing the right thing and preserving our water supply for our users.
