A Fort Payne man is accused of stealing about 240-thousand gallons of water. The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department says someone tapped into a water main connected to the Northeast Alabama Water District. Workers discovered the alleged theft after a county employee hit the pipe while doing road work. An investigation found that the line was illegally supplying water to a home where water service was terminated in 2010. 57-year-old William Andrew Baker is charged with stealing the water, which is worth about 13-hundred dollars.
