HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) — Officials suspended a police officer in Henderson County after his service rifle and ammunition were stolen from his unlocked vehicle in Indiana.

WFIE reports that the theft happened last month while Officer Ryan Meredith was across the river from Kentucky.

It was one of several vehicle break-ins in the area.

On Friday, the Henderson City Commission met for a hearing about the incident.

Afterward, officials announced Meredith would be suspended for four months and have his pay reduced.
