LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A water district has sued Tom Selleck, claiming the star of the crime shows "Magnum, P.I." and "Blue Bloods" stole truckloads of water from a public hydrant and brought it to his ranch in drought-stricken California.
The Calleguas Municipal Water District in Ventura County claims a tanker truck filled up at a hydrant more than a dozen times and hauled water to a 60-acre ranch owned by Selleck in Westlake Village.
The district also says it spent nearly $22,000 to hire a private investigator to document the alleged thefts that date back two years.
The Los Angeles Times says Selleck grows avocados at the ranch.
Representatives for Selleck did not return phone messages and emails seeking comment Wednesday. The lawsuit also names his wife, Jillie Selleck.
The lawsuit was filed on June 30 after California communities were ordered to cut water use by 25 percent compared with 2013 levels due to the relentless, four-year drought.
The area in Ventura County where Selleck has his land is under mandatory cutbacks as high 36 percent from 2013.
The district claims it sent Selleck cease-and-desist letters aimed at halting the unlawful water deliveries, but the truck was spotted as recently as March filling up at the hydrant on four days and delivering water to the ranch.
The suit does not specify how much water was taken.
In addition to legal fees and investigative costs, the water district is seeking an injunction barring Selleck and his contractors or employees from taking water from the district.
The suit was originally reported Tuesday by Courthouse NewsSelleck
It will fall for a brief moment during a trading range of about 20% that day and it will hit and go back up...shares are not easy to come by at cheap prices when stock has upward momentum
You will get suckered into losing your shares.
The next news from the company will propel the stock again at much higher levels.
Smart money is holding and buying.
Go back and read the CEO's comments of press releases. The feeling is SUN shining on the future rather than a CLOUD hanging over the company! It is just the beginning!!!
Good luck to all longs ....continue to look past today and what's ahead for the next year.
You will be rewarded greatly.
Protect your shares.....if you put a stop loss order in ....it will hit and you lose your shares as it continues to rise!!!
..... it will always go down to the lowest stop loss value entered TO EXECUTE A SELL ORDER and it will bounce right back up...YOU WILL LOSE YOUR SHARES !!!!!
I own 7000 shares at a dollar cost of $1.40 for 6-7years and traded half on highs and bought on back lows.I have made a great return in doing so.
HOWEVER.... the company is in a game changer position and in FINALLY getting recognized which is 2 years over due.
I plan on trading less shares at much higher new highs and new lows over the next couple years.
THAT IS IF A BUYOUT DOES NOT HAPPEN FIRST.
VERY LONG TIME SHAREHOLDER HERE AND VERY LONG AND STRONG !!!!
Good Luck all longs.... it is just the beginning of things to come.
SMÄRT MONEY IS BUYING NOW !!
I have owned this stock for 6 years and I am in at $1.40 dollar cost average on7000 shares.
I have traded 3000 shares as it makes a run higher. I sell and buy back if it falls way cheaper.
EVERY TIME I PUT A STOP LOSS IN IT SEEMS TO ALWAYS FALL DOWN TO THAT PRICE.
EVENTUALLY EVERYONE DOES AND IT FALLS.
The past week has been the start of a game changer for this company as it FINALLY is getting recognized.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
