Ashland City Councilman Chad Yochum has been cited for misdemeanor theft, accused of stealing water from the city.

Investigators say the 39-year-old Yochum is suspected of disconnecting his home's meter so he didn't have to pay for the water. City officials say other residents are suspected of doing the same, but so far only Yochum has been cited.

City Attorney Mark Fahleson says he didn't know how much water was involved in Yochum's case.
