Man, runaway juvenile charged with stealing vehicles

RICHMOND — Richmond police have charged an adult man and a juvenile in connection with thefts from vehicles in the Brookline subdivision.

Daiquan Smith, 20, Churchilll Drive, was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, theft by unlawful taking (under $500), receiving stolen property (under $500) and third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor.

The juvenile was charged with theft by unlawful taking (under $500) and receiving stolen property (under $500). He was released to social services as he was reported to be a runaway from Indiana, according to the RPD report.

Officers were sent at 1:48 p.m. Wednesday to Tobiano and Paso Fino drives after receiving a report that vehicles were being broken into.

The officers observed two men running and detained Smith and the juvenile, according to the report.

The juvenile was carrying a BB gun in his waistband, which was retrieved by the officers, the report stated.

The officers also reported recovering credit cards and personal identification documents from both suspects that were determined to have been stolen from a vehicle in the 600 block of Shetland Drive.

A set of steel knuckles also was found on Smith, according to the RPD.

Two people were charged Wednesday with shoplifting a TV from Walmart.

Doris A. Meadows, 37, Mount Vernon, and Alex Torivio, 31, address unknown are facing charges of theft by unlawful taking (more than $500).

Officers were dispatched to Walmart at 5 p.m. to investigate a shoplifting complaint, according to an RPD report. The employees told them that Meadows and Torivio were seen placing a Samsung 46-inch LED television in a shopping cart and then they attempted to leave the store without paying for the item.
