WICHITA, Kan. — Auditors say about $145,000, guns and drugs are missing from the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office property and evidence storage, and it’s possible more could be missing.
Sheriff Jeff Easter said an investigation began after an employee noticed the storage area was in disarray in January. A property and evidence technician and a supervisor were the focus of the investigation and no longer work with the department. Sedgwick County Attorney Marc Bennett said some cases have been dismissed because of the missing evidence, most of which was supposed to be destroyed.
He says the dismissed cases are lower-level drug cases.
