A Wichita, Kansas, man has been sentenced to a year and a half in federal prison on prostitution-related charges connected to a sting operation targeting massage parlors.
Wichita police say a man is charged with stealing props and costumes of the Blue Man Group while the performance artists were in that south-central Kansas city last week.
Thirty-three-year-old Freddy Gonzalez-Gonzalez of Wichita was arrested Tuesday and charged two days later with aggravated burglary and felony theft.
Police have said the theft involved items worth more than $1,000 from a performance arts center where Blue Man Group was scheduled for two nights of shows.
Police say publicly released photos of the suspect on surveillance video were instrumental in Gonzalez’s arrest.
It was not immediately clear Friday if Gonzalez has an attorney.
