Sheriff: Kansas corporal charged with theft

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A former Sedgwick County sheriff’s corporal has been charged with theft after authorities say he stole about $200 in cash while working at the jail.

Sheriff Jeff Easter said Wednesday the suspect is charged with two counts of misdemeanor theft. Easter wouldn’t identify the man but said he worked at the department for 10 years.

The investigation started in September after a contract worker at the Sedgwick County Jail reported money missing from a purse. Authorities also found money was missing from a collection box at the jail.

Easter says the ex-corporal’s employment with the sheriff’s office ended earlier this month. He didn’t say if the man resigned or was fired.
