— A Henderson police detective faces charges of larceny.

Henderson police and members of the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation arrested Detective Sgt. Kendall Riddick, 35, on Tuesday.

Police said Riddick’s arrest stemmed from a local business owner’s report of an incident on Oct. 5. Police did not elaborate on the business owner’s report.

Riddick is charged with one count of felony larceny and three counts of misdemeanor larceny. He was being held under a $10,000 bond in the Henderson jail.
