Police charge two men in liquor store burglary

RICHMOND — Richmond police have arrested two men in connection with a break-in at a local liquor store and the theft of more than $1,000 in cigarettes.

Brad Scott Lamb, 23, Steep Street, was charged Thursday with third-degree burglary, and Dustin R. Cook, 23, Boggs Lane, was charged with complicity to third-degree burglary, according to a news release from Police Chief Larry Brock.

A representative of the House of Liquor, Big Hill Avenue, reported Sept. 6 that the business had been burglarized the previous night, Brock said.

Thirty to 40 cartons of cigarettes and a bottle of Jim Beam whiskey were stolen, which had a total value of $1,242.

“The follow-up investigation identified Lamb and Cook as suspects in the burglary,” Brock said in the release.

After being interviewed at the police station Thursday, the two men were charged with the store’s burglary and taken to the Madison County Detention Center.

Both men remained in jail Monday afternoon.

The cigarettes have not been recovered, Brock said.

RPD: Man accepted payment, but failed to deliver flooring

A Richmond man has been charged with theft after police say he sold antique flooring to a woman for $7,700 but never delivered the wood.

James Davis, 42, East Locust Street, was charged Friday with theft by failure to make required disposition of property, an RPD news release stated.

The woman told police June 29 that she responded to a Craigslist advertisement in March offering antique wood flooring for sale that had been salvaged during a home demolition.

Davis was the person the woman spoke to about the wood, and she agreed to buy the flooring if it met her needs, the release stated.

The woman’s contractor from Tennessee inspected the flooring March 29 and found it acceptable.

The contractor delivered a $7,700 check in exchange for 2,420 square feet of flooring, according to the release.

The contractor was only able to pick up a small portion of wood the day he delivered the check, and the woman reported she planned on picking up the rest later.

However, two days later when she went to pick up the remaining wood, it was gone, the release stated.

Davis told the woman for two months he was going to deliver the wood, but never did, according to the release.

A warrant was issued July 19 for Davis’ arrest, and he was taken into custody Friday at his home.
