2 Kansas deputies accused in funds case

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Two Kansas sheriff’s deputies have been arrested on suspicion of stealing taxpayer money.

Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter announced the arrests Tuesday without naming the deputies. Easter says the case has been turned over to the district attorney’s office.

The deputies worked in the transportation division, taking inmates between jails. Easter says the arrests followed a two-week investigation.

No other details about the alleged theft of public money were released, and Easter said he would not comment further. Both deputies were booked into the Sedgwick County jail, one on suspicion of giving false information and the other on suspicion of false information and official misconduct.
