Wichita Airport Authority (WAA) Airport Officer/Firefighter LT. Matthew Hoyt has been charged with two counts of Computer Crimes by the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s (DA) Office.
WPD officials learned of an incident involving LT. Hoyt during the month of June. After the incident, detectives learned Hoyt had previously accessed and printed criminal reports from the Wichita Police Department’s records management system. The Wichita Airport Authority’s Chief of Police, Chief Xanders requested the Wichita Police Department (WPD) to lead the investigation to avoid a conflict of interest.
Hoyt has been employed with the Wichita Airport Authority for 22 years and has been indefinitely removed from his supervisor position and all commissioned law enforcement officer duties pending outcome of the investigation. As Hoyt is also a certified airport fire fighter and EMT, his duty assignment is restricted to fire and medical duties.
The case was presented to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office.
The case number is 22CR855.
