After a yearlong investigation, Kinston Police have arrested three in an embezzlement investigation at the Piggly Wiggly on North McLewean St.

Ronald Hill, Shannon Martinez and Shonice Whitfield were arrested and charged with five counts of embezzlement, larceny by employee, obtaining property under false pretense, and one count each of conspiracy. They were all placed under a $50,000 bond.

Woody Spencer with the Kinston Department of Public Safety tells 9 On Your Side that around $30,000 was taken by Hill, Martinez, and Whitfield. Police arrested them on March 27th and 28th.

Kinston Police don't believe any of the three have a prior criminal record.
