There have been vehicles stolen in different areas of the county recently. We remind everyone to take their keys out of their vehicles and remove valuables. Thieves target unlocked vehicles and look for keys left in vehicles. Do not be a victim.

Citizens are still reporting getting calls saying they have won a sweepstakes and need to pay a tax to get their money. Callers are also reporting to be from social security or other government agencies wanting money. DO NOT FALL PREY TO THESE SCAMS…Hang up and do not call the number back as you may incur large charges on your phone bill. These scammers are constantly calling unsuspecting folks and are trying to steal your money.

As always, we ask that our citizens be aware and vigilant. Please report any and all suspicious activity. We know that we cannot do this job without your support and confidence. We thank you for that trust and support.

Be safe and be aware.
Rob Hoskins
Sheriff Wabaunsee County Kansas.

On 02/17/2020 shortly after 11:00AM an alert citizen reported that they had found individuals on their rural property off Echo Cliff Road and it appeared these individuals had entered a storage container and were in the process of stealing an A.T.V. and trailer.

These individuals fled the area when the owner spotted them and drove away. The individual called 911 and followed them giving the sheriff's office updates to their location. Officers from the Wabaunsee County Sheriff's Office and the Kansas Highway Patrol responded. The individuals attempted to drive south on Carlson Road and got stuck in the mud. They abandoned their vehicle and attempted to flee the area on foot. Tracking dogs and the highway patrol aircraft assisted in locating these individuals.

Clayton D Bullock and Randy Allen Ridens Jr. were taken into custody. They were booked into the Wabaunsee County Jail for burglary; attempted theft and narcotics charges. Their bond was set at $75,000.00.

We would like to thank the citizens that were alert and calling the sheriff's office with information about these individuals and the Kansas Highway Patrol for the assistance provided.

This is another example of our community working together with law enforcement to keep all of us safer and for all our protection. Thank you for your continued support.
