KendrickKendrickFRED ­– A recent traffic stop conducted by deputies with the Tyler County Sheriff’s Office yielded a find of narcotics and resulted in charges for a Fred man.

According to Tyler County Sheriff Bryan Weatherford, the deputies instigated the stop of a vehicle travelling on FM 92 south at Franks Branch Cemetery on a traffic violation on the morning of Saturday, June 10 at approximately 1 a.m. The driver, Roy Frank Kendrick, IV, age 30, was found to be driving without a license, or proof of insurance and the vehicle he drove displayed a fictitious registration sticker.

When deputies searched the vehicle, according to Weatherford, they discovered a plastic bottle containing the prescription drugs Hydrocodone and Xanax, as well as a .45 caliber pistol. Kendrick, according to Weatherford, was a felon on parole.

Kendrick was arrested and transported to the Tyler County Jail, where he was charged with the multiple traffic violations; unlawful possession of a firearm by felon and two possession of a controlled substance charges.

Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace Jim Moore set Kendrick’s bond at $15,000. He was subsequently transferred to Hardin County Jail on the parole violation.
