  • A man who lives in western Sedgwick County is hoping police can recover a belt buckle collection stolen by a burglar.
    The thief got away with $9,000 in loot from the rural home, including the belt buckles, guns and coins.
    The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office says the burglar forced open a door at the home between April 30 and May 1.
    Home owner Victor Leis says he has collected about belt buckles since he was a child, dating back to 1974. He tells KWCH (http://bit.ly/15N03oe ) that his parents gave their children belt buckles at Christmas and he had continued that tradition.
