OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) — An eastern Kansas sheriff and deputy have been charged with felony interference with law enforcement operations following a five-month investigation. Franklin County Sheriff Jeffry Curry and deputy Jerrod Fredricks were arrested Wednesday by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Curry is also charged with misdemeanor official misconduct. State and county authorities did not disclose details of the KBI investigation or the charges, saying more information would be released at the men's first court appearances on March 6. Curry and Fredricks were taken for their safety to the Wyandotte County jail. The jail's website showed both released later Wednesday — Curry on a $3,000 bond and Fredricks on a $1,500 bond. Neither man has a listed phone number. The case is being prosecuted by the Shawnee County district attorney.
