Richmond man charged with identity theft, concealing deadly weapon



Police on Monday charged Curment N. Carpenter, 42, of Richmond with theft of identity of another and carrying a concealed deadly weapon after he was arrested on parole violation warrant.

According to the report, Carpenter was paroled in April after being convicted and imprisoned for several crimes, including first-degree possession of a controlled substance and carrying a concealed deadly weapon. However, a parole violation warrant was issued for his arrest in August after he absconded parole supervision and failed to complete treatment for substance abuse, the report stated.

A patrol officer observed Carpenter near the CVS store in downtown Richmond and believed he matched the description of the suspect of the Monday robbery of Check for Cash on the Eastern Bypass, the report stated.

The officer made contact with Carpenter and found he was in possession of a set of brass knuckles, the report stated. When asked for identification, Carpenter gave a false name and another person’s social security number.

Carpenter was lodged in the detention center, where he remained Wednesday afternoon, according to the jail’s online records.
