Wichita, Kansas (KSNW) — Former Sedgwick County Security Officer’s property and evidence supervisor was sentenced in court last week for stealing evidence such as cash, drugs, and guns.
Robert White, who was 52 at the time of his arrest, was sentenced to 119 months in prison, or 9 years and 11 months, by a Sedgwick County judge, according to Sedgwick County officials.
According to court documents, White was found guilty of five drug distribution charges, six theft charges, and one official misconduct on January 12, 2022.
The indictment resulted from an arrest made in 2020. From May 2019 to February 2020, prosecutors said White and another man had put money, medicine, and other items in their pockets, turning the evidence log into a destroyed one.
Later, some of the stolen evidence was sold.
According to the affidavit, White’s plan was discovered when he lied to his agent about the whereabouts of cocaine for K9 training.
The district attorney said in June 2020 that the theft had forced him to dismiss at least 30 proceedings.
