A local property owner who was accused by the City of
Toledo of water theft and unauthorized use of water has entered into a plea
agreement with the city to resolve the criminal case.
The city charged Adel Kamal with 15 counts of theft and
15 counts of tampering, and the city accepted a plea deal with Kamal on charges
of disorderly conduct.
"The plea was to seven counts on a reduced charge, and
there will be actual electronic monitoring for 30 days, as well as some other
aspects involved in sentencing," said Toledo Law Director Adam Loukx.
Toledo water customers will be charged with higher rates
over the next five years to pay for improvements to the Collins Park water
treatment plant, and the city recently hired a retired TPD detective to
investigate possible cases of water theft.
"Everyone who gets water needs to pay for water, meet
their obligations," Loukx said. "It's certainly
not fair for other rate payers if some don't pay to have to subsidize, so we
are taking it seriously."
The city has pending civil cases against Adel Kamal,
seeking restitution of more than $45,000.
