Osage City man sentenced to prison for making false information

An Osage City man has been sentenced to almost two years in prison for making false information, along with having his probation revoked for previous convictions.

According to a press release from the Osage County Attorney’s Office, on Aug. 15, 2016, Osage County District Court Judge Phillip Fromme sentenced Benjamin M. Weiser, 25, Osage City, to serve 23 months in custody of the Kansas Department of Corrections.

The release said Weiser’s conviction of making false information wrapped up a multi-agency investigation in which it was discovered that Weiser stole mail from several residential mail boxes in Carbondale and Osage City. Weiser used the stolen information to open or access bank accounts to fraudulently obtain money.

Fromme also revoked Weiser’s probation for previous convictions of criminal threat and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Osage County Sheriff’s Office, the Osage City Police Department, and the Carbondale Police Department investigated the case.
