The County Attorney for Marion County, Kansas says police didn’t have the evidence to raid a local newspaper.

County Attorney Joel Ensey, effectively Marion County’s prosecutor, asked police to return the equipment they took in last week’s thorough judge-authorized raid of The Marion County Record.

The Record’s equipment was taken on Friday after the paper notified police of information that it believed was given in bad faith about a local restauranteur’s drunk driving conviction. Police reacted by accusing the paper of identity theft and computer crimes, then took its equipment using a warrant it didn’t try to justify until days later.
