WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Sedgwick County detention deputy is accused of stealing an inmate's debit card and using it to buy $50 worth of items at a store.
Sheriff Jeff Easter said Friday the deputy was arrested the previous day on suspicion of theft and criminal use of a financial card. The deputy bonded out of jail and is now on administrative leave.
Easter says an investigation began when the inmate complained that his $50 debit card was missing after he had been transported to a work release facility Aug. 22. Surveillance video from a store shows a uniformed detention deputy using the card about eight hours after the inmate's transfer.
The case will be presented to prosecutors within a few days for a decision on charges.
