Wichita police say nearly $4,000 was stolen from the food court at the Wichita River Festival last week.
According to a public incident report, someone stole money that was to be deposited from the food court. The report says the money was bagged in "tamper proof plastic deposit bags". The money came from sales of tickets that allowed people to buy food and drinks at the food court. The stolen deposit totaled $3,720.
Captain Doug Nolte, a spokesman for the Wichita Police Department, said the theft was reported on Thursday, June 12. He did not have an exact date on when it actually happened or any suspect information.
"This is something that was found out after the fact," Nolte said. "So there's not a lot of suspect information to offer."
Wichita Festivals, Inc. told Eyewitness News this loss is not a large percentage of the money Riverfest took in this year.
Wichita Festivals, Inc. hosted Riverfest in downtown Wichita, May 30-June 7.
