WICHITA, Kansas - A Sedgwick County Sheriff's detention deputy has been arrested.
At a press conference Friday morning, Sheriff Jeff Easter said that a detention deputy stole a debit card from an inmate in the work release program and used it to spend money.
Investigators tracked the stolen card to a business where surveillance video was obtained showing the deputy.
"The individual was taken upstairs where he was interviewed in reference to the case and after that interview he was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail for criminal use of financial card and theft," said Easter.
He has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
The case will be presented to prosecutors within a few days for a decision on charges.
