  • Theft
  • Misuse of public funds
  • Official misconduct
  • Destroying a written instrument

Alongside arresting Clanin, the KBI said it put out an arrest warrant for Alexandra Wilcox, 22, of Shawnee, Okla. Another former corrections officer at the Cloud County Jail, the agency said it is looking for her for misdemeanor theft stemming from the same case.

The KBI said arresting officials booked Clanin into the Republic County Jail. The KBI first told KSNT News about the two-year Cloud County Jail investigation when it arrested the facility’s former administrator, Amber Lindberg, and her mother on Thursday. A spokesperson for the KBI said after looking into Lindberg while she worked there in 2019, it discovered she used public county funds for personal purchases.
