NESS CITY, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says it arrested the Ness County Sheriff after an investigation into misconduct.

The KBI announced Thursday that 47-year-old Sheriff Bryan Whipple, of Ness City, was arrested on charges of perjury, making false information, criminal distribution of firearms to a felon and official misconduct.

The bureau said in a statement that the alleged crimes are believed to have happened in the last four years.

Whipple made an initial appearance in Rush County District Court shortly after his arrest.

The KBI’s statement said no more information about the alleged misconduct would be released because the investigation is continuing.
