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.

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