Customer Question

I am putting some new outlets into a kitchen. The gfci outlet box has a 3 wire coming into the box. I am not sure why there should be a 3 wire 12 gauge Romex at that location. Should I just cap the red wire, or is there more I need to do?

The red wire is a second line so its OK to cap.
