Geary County Sheriff arrested

John AndersonOctober 18, 2018

The Geary County Sheriff was arrested Thursday morning following allegations he gave away a gun owned by the county. Kansas Bureau of Investigation special agents took Sheriff Anthony “Tony” Wolf into custody around 9 a.m. He was booked for felony theft and misuse of public funds. He has since been released on bond and is on administrative leave. The agency says he is accused of giving a county-owned firearm to a third-party and used public dollars in a manner not authorized by law. They did not detail how the public money was spent but did say it was unrelated to the firearm allegation. They did not identify the alleged recipient. The KBI began its investigation into the case in August. They then handed their findings over to Dickinson Co. Attorney Andrea Purvis, who was acting as a special prosecutor. A warrant was then obtained for Wolf’s arrest.
