BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) - A former police sergeant has pleaded no contest in Kern County court to a charge related to the unlawful use of someone else’s identity.

Prosecutors say Mike Weber stole the identity of a fellow officer and then used it to open an account with Pacific Gas and Electric, running up a power bill of more than $10,000.

Weber was a roommate of the victim and supervised him at the police department in the city of McFarland.

Weber pleaded no contest Wednesday to a felony count of unauthorized use of identifying information of another. A second charge was dropped. KBAK-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Vl8sIw) the charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor if Weber pays $16,000 in restitution.

Weber has retired from the force.
