Marc Gordon, a second property and evidence technician accused of theft, has been booked into the Sedgwick County Detention Facility.

The sheriff’s office said the investigation began earlier this year when evidence was found to be missing during an audit. It included approximately $145,000 in money, drugs, seven guns, and power tools.

The district attorney says the theft has forced him to dismiss 30 cases so far.

Both employees are no longer with the sheriff’s office.
