The U.S. Attorney's Office confirms to News10NBC that bail was denied for Christopher Kendrick Friday in Federal Court. 

Police say Kendrick was caught in one of the biggest drug busts in Rochester’s history. The city worker is accused of possessing more than 50 pounds of cocaine. He is also charged with trying to distribute the drugs. On Monday, prosecutors announced his arrest.

News10NBC is told Kendrick testified at Thursday’s hearing. The prosecution wanted him to be held without bail.
