Geary County Sheriff Arrested Again

A Kansas Sheriff was arrested Friday, for a second time.

According to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, 44-year-old Anthony J. “Tony” Wolf,  the Geary County Sheriff, was arrested.

Just after 2 p.m., at the Geary County Sheriff’s Office, 826 N. Franklin St. in Junction City, Kan., Wolf was arrested for a new count of felony theft.

The charge alleges Wolf used county funds to purchase items that were then sold for personal profit, or maintained for personal use. Earlier in the day Wolf appeared at a pre-trial conference regarding the charges he was previously arrested for on Oct. 18, 2018.

In the October case, Wolf was arrested for allegedly giving a county-owned firearm as a gift to a third party, and for misuse of public funds. The misuse of public funds allegation asserts Wolf used public dollars in a manner not authorized by law.

Wolf was booked into the Geary County Jail. Dickinson County Attorney Andrea Purvis has been appointed as special prosecutor for this case.
