A Hamilton County man is busted for stealing water from a fire hydrant to fill up his swimming pool. Soddy-Daisy Police charged him with Theft of Services. It's a crime local officials say likely happens more than they can prove.

Soddy-Daisy Police responded to Fritts Road where neighbors reported a man using fire hydrant water to fill his pool. He admitted it and now owes the water company several hundred dollars.
