A Sedgwick County detention deputy has been arrested on suspicion of two counts of theft.

The arrest was the result of an investigation into a theft that occurred on Sept. 5, at the Hidden Lake Golf Course. 

Sheriff Jeff Easter says the deputy, identified as Alexander Whiteman, has been employed by the Sheriff’s Office for approximately two years and two months. Whiteman was placed on administrative leave at the time of the investigation.

The case was presented to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office on Thursday.  A warrant for Whiteman’s arrest was issued Friday, and he was taken into custody.
