WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Wichita police announced Friday that officer Thomas Wallace was booked into the county jail on two counts of misdemeanor stalking.

WPD said officials learned of Wallace possibly stalking a woman known to him, stemming from an investigation by the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office that began late last year concerning another WPD employee.

The sheriff investigated in order to avoid conflicts of interest.

Wallace has been employed with WPD for five years and was placed on paid administrative leave today, pending the outcome of the criminal and internal investigation.
