The Kansas Bureau of Investigation arrested a former Kansas undersheriff.

According to a news release from the KBI over the weekend, KBI agents arrested Harold Stellner, 55, of Clay Center, when he turned himself in Friday afternoon at the Clay County Jail at 539 Lincoln Ave. in Clay Center. He was arrested for mistreatment of a confined person, a class A misdemeanor.

On Oct. 4, 2023, the KBI initiated this investigation at the request of the Clay County Sheriff when he discovered evidence of an incident that took place on Sept. 29, at the Clay County Jail. During the incident it is believed Stellner unlawfully struck an inmate. Shortly after, Stellner’s employment was terminated by the Sheriff’s Office.
