the town has filed a suit against the actor, alleging he used a public hydrant to fill a commercial water tank, which he then brought to this 60-acre ranch in Westlake Village.
According to a complaint filed on Monday in the Ventura County Superior Court, Selleck is barred from using the water in the hydrant because his property is located in Hidden Valley Municipal Water District.
Per the complaint, Calleguas claims it had to pay an investigator $21,685.55 to document the water theft, and a truck was seen transporting water to Selleck’s home a dozen times, as recently as March 2015.
Selleck’s wife Jillie Mack is also named in the complaint.
The couple are also accused of continuing to steal water after the Calleguas Municipal Water District sent him a cease-and-desist letter to two of his Southern California properties in 2013.
California is currently in the midst of one of the most severe droughts on record. Governor Brown declared a drought State of Emergency in January, and residents are being asked to slash their water use by 25 percent.
Selleck did not immediately return a request for comment.
