WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Investigators from the Exploited and Missing Children Unit in Sedgwick County and Sedgwick County Sheriff’s deputies on Wednesday conducted a traffic stop in the county that led to the arrest of an Andale man, suspected of child sex crimes.

“During the traffic stop a probable cause arrest of 53-year-old Richard Rierson, of Andale, was made by the units on scene,” the sheriff’s office said.

Sedgwick County Jail records show Rierson was booked on 23 counts of sexual exploitation of a child.
