Rigdon 2HENDERSON, Ky. (10/29/17) — A man suspected of burglary was apparently Henderson Police Department’s catch of the day.

Police reported seeing the man inside the South Green Street Captain D’s restaurant upon arriving to the 6 a.m. alarm call.

When officers arrived, Billy Ridgon was making his way out the back door, HPD said. A chase ensued behind a downtown motel alley. Police caught the suspect moments later.

Rigdon, 37, was charged with third-degree burglary, possession of burglary tools, first-degree criminal mischief, second-degree fleeing or evading police on foot, resisting arrest, parole violation and other charges.

He was listed as being held in Henderson County Jail this afternoon without bond.
