A water district filed a lawsuit against Selleck, claiming that the “Magnum P.I.” and “Blue Bloods” is stealing gallons of water from a public hydrant and bringing it to his 60-acre ranch, located in drought stricken California.
According to Calleguas Municipal Water District, a tanker truck dispatched hydrant waters more than dozens of times for Selleck’s ranch in Westlake Village, where he reportedly grows avocados.
Documents suggest that the illegal water deliveries began in 2013. Water district sent cease and desist letter to Tom and his wife Jillie Selleck on the basis of multiple reports and first hand sightings in November 26, 2013. To document the illegal activity, which resumed again in March 2015, district hired a private investigator spending nearly $22,000. The lawsuit was filed against Selleck on June 30, 2015.
The 70-year old Selleck and his wife Jillie, who is also named in the complaint, are living Hidden Valley, Ventura County for nearly three decades. Selleck owns a number of properties in other areas as well including Fallbrook, Freedom and Prescott, Arizona and is known for his love for growing avocados.
In a December 2007 interview with Good Housekeeping, Selleck also talked about his interest.
“I live on a 63-acre avocado ranch. So I like to get outside and work on the farm, from fixing roads to clearing bush…And I work cheaper than anyone I could hire to do it.”
