CURRITUCK – A 24-year-old Currituck County man is facing kidnapping charges, allegedly in connection with a breaking and entering of a house earlier this year, records show.

Richard David Eugene Foster, of the 100 block of Wedgewood Drive, was indicted by a Currituck grand jury April 9 on three counts of second-degree kidnapping and one count of first-degree burglary. Foster turned himself in four days later at the Currituck Sheriff’s Office.

Foster appeared May 29 at a hearing before Superior Court Judge Jerry Tillett, who set bond at $100,000 unsecured, apparently consistent with an agreement by the two sides in the case. The Sheriff’s Office said Foster went free the same day.

The indictments state Foster the night of Jan. 19 broke into and entered a house in the Poplar Branch area, where he moved a female and two males from one area to another without their consent and for the purpose of committing a felony offense.

The indictments state Foster carried away a flat screen monitor, vehicle seat covers, a microphone stand, several pairs of shoes and several T-shirts.

The Public Defender’s Office is representing Foster in the case.

Judge Tillett ordered Foster back in court Aug. 20.
