The former manager of a western Kansas electric cooperative has been charged with stealing more than $100,000.

The Hays Daily News reports that 59-year-old Earl N. Steffens of Dighton is charged in Lane County with theft. He's accused of stealing the money from a co-op subsidiary.

Steffens was general manager of the cooperative from 2001 until earlier this year. Lane-Scott provides electricity to parts of Rush, Gove and Logan counties and most of Ness County, in addition to all of Lane County and portions of Scott and Finney counties.

Lane County Attorney Dale Pike says Steffens is accused of stealing from High Line Services LLC, a subsidiary of Lane-Scott.

Steffens' lawyer didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Tuesday.
