Police charge two men in liquor store burglary



Stolen moped recovered

Police were able to make an arrest and recover a stolen moped just a day after it was reported stolen.

Larry R. Dunaway, 33, Manna Drive, was charged Wednesday with receiving stolen property (under $10,000).

A resident in the 200 block of Evansdale Avenue told police Monday that his TGB Cheetah R-5 moped, worth $1,000, had been stolen from his apartment building’s parking lot during the previous night.

Police were investigating a report of suspicious activity the next day behind Dunaway’s apartment and discovered the stolen moped, according to the news release.

Dunaway had been in possession of the moped since shortly after its theft, according to the release.

He was arrested and taken to the Madison County Detention Center while the moped was returned to its owner.

Man charged with trying to cash stolen check

Police have charged a man they say tried to cash a stolen check from a local business.

John Hembree, 39, Rose Lane, was charged Friday with second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

The previous day, the owner of Madison Tool & Die had been contacted by his bank, which told him that a man was attempting to cash a check for $2,500 on the company’s account, according to an RPD news release.

The owner didn’t remember issuing a check for that amount and then discovered seven of his company checks were missing, the release stated.

The follow-up investigation identified Hembree as the man who tried to cash the check, and he was arrested after being interviewed Friday at the police department, according to the release.

$14,400 in jewelry taken from Longview Drive home

A resident in the 100 block of Longview Drive told police Saturday that her home had been broken into and thousands in jewelry had been stolen.

The home had been entered by cutting the screen on an open bathroom window in the rear of the  home, according to the RPD.

The missing jewelry included several necklaces, rings, earrings and other pieces worth $14,400.

Other burglaries:

• A person reported Thursday that three empty rental properties in the 1200 and 1300 blocks of Berea Road had been broken sometime during the previous two weeks, and copper wiring and piping had been stolen. The estimated loss was $6,000.
