WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas detention deputy has lost his job after being arrested for shoplifting.
KAKE-TV reports Wichita police officers were called to a shoplifting report at a Walmart around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter says an off-duty detention deputy was arrested for the crime.
The sheriff says the man had been a detention deputy for less than a year but is no longer employed by the sheriff’s office.
The man was issued a notice to appear on the theft charge at a later date.
