The actions after Kansas Bureau of Investigation officers converged on the courthouse last Thursday with a search warrant, closing the clerk’s office, advising that they were investigating a potential criminal case involving a clerk’s office employee.

That employee has not been identified by officials, and county commissioners at the time were unaware of any wrong doing. The KBI has not replied to requests for additional information, indicating that would not be available until such investigations are complete.
