SEDGWICK COUNTY—Law enforcement authorities have arrested a detention deputy.

The Sedgwick County sheriff’s office received information this week that a detention deputy was introducing contraband to the Sedgwick County Detention Facility, according to Lt. Benjamin Blick.

The Sheriff’s Office Investigations Division and Professional Standards Unit investigated the complaint and determined probable cause existed to arrest the detention deputy Braydon Hoover-Lane for three counts of Traffic in Contraband in a Correctional Institution (K.S.A 21-5914).

 Hoover-Lane was booked into the Sedgwick County Detention Facility and placed on unpaid suspension. He has been employed by the Sheriff’s Office since September 2019, according to Blick.  He was no longer in custody Sunday morning, according to online jail records.
