A company headed by former Kansas Lt. Gov. Dave Owen has run out of cash.

A company headed by former Kansas Lt. Gov. Dave Owen has run out of cash.


A document filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission this week says that Icop Digital Inc. in Lenexa has suspended operations while it seeks investment.


The company reported in the SEC filing that it doesn't have enough cash to meet its Dec. 31 payroll and must lay off its entire staff.


The filing says the company's executives and key employees will continue to work without pay while the company searches for investment.


Icop specializes in providing digital surveillance equipment to law enforcement domestically and overseas.


Owen runs the company with his wife, Laura, who previously served as the state's commerce secretary.


A message that The Associated Press left at the couple's home wasn't immediately returned.
