Fake bail bondsman scams family in KCK

A man pretending to be a bail bondsman took $1,500 from the family of a Wyandotte County jail prisoner, according to the sheriff’s office.

The theft took place July 26 at the Wyandotte County Courthouse. The family was attempting to bail out a relative and believed the man was a legitimate bail bondsman, officials said.

As part of the investigation, the sheriff’s office released a surveillance photo of a man it wants to speak to about the incident.

Anyone with information about the man’s identity is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
