Undersheriff headed to KBI

Washington County undersheriff Kyle Applegarth has accepted a position with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation’s cyber crime unit. The Washington native will be working with computers to track scams as well as trace cell phones, among other things. Applegarth is trained in using cell phone signals to track people and has helped several Kansas agencies track cell phones over the past five years.

Applegarth, who will have the title of special agent, will begin his new job in Lenexa in a few weeks and said the plan is for his wife and children to relocate to the Lenexa area when the school year is over.

Washington County Sheriff Justin Cordry said he plans to have Applegarth’s undersheriff position filled “fairly quick.”
