KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A former suburban Kansas City technology director has been charged in federal court with selling nearly $100,000 in city-purchased electronic devices on an internet auction site.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Kansas City, Kansas, says 44-year-old Andrew Davey of Overland Park appeared in court Monday on five counts of wire fraud and one count of theft.

Prosecutors say Davey was Lenexa’s technology director when he used city funds to purchase electronics and then sell them on eBay for a total of roughly $98,000.

Davey could face up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000 on each wire fraud count and up to 10 years and a $250,000 fine on the theft charge.

His attorneys weren’t available Tuesday afternoon for comment.
