MANHATTAN (KSNT) – The Riley County Police Department is on the lookout for a suspect who reportedly caused a power outage in two businesses in Manhattan, causing thousands of dollars worth of product to be lost.
The RCPD posted photos of the suspect to its Facebook page saying a person wearing gray clothes was responsible for pulling a lever on a breaker box which caused the power to go out for two nearby businesses: Insomnia Cookies and the Kountry Attic. Both places were without power for over 36 hours, resulting in over $10,000 worth of cookie product going to waste.
