Pot throwing downtown leads to arrest

RICHMOND — A Berea man was arrested Saturday after police say he damaged a downtown Richmond business and a parked vehicle by throwing flower pots.

Jonathan A. McCullough, 34, was charged with first- and third-degree criminal mischief as well as alcohol intoxication, according to a Richmond police report.

An officer was dispatched to Madison Garden Bar and Grill just before 2 a.m. to investigate a report that a man was throwing objects into the roadway, the police report stated.

Upon arrival, the officer encountered McCullough and observed large plastic flower pots spilled about the street. The officer was told McCullough had thrown one of the large flower pots onto the hood of a vehicle in front of restaurant and also caused damage to the building’s vinyl siding.

Also on Saturday, police charged Dequentin L. Anderson, 28, of Wagonwheel Road, with several offenses, including escape and first-degree possession of a controlled substance, following a traffic stop.

At about 1:25 a.m., police stopped a vehicle Anderson was driving on South Killarney Lane for a traffic violation, the police report stated.

After the officer determined Anderson was driving on a suspended operator’s license and he was taken into custody, he attempted to flee on foot while also trying to dispose of a plastic bag from his pocket, the police report stated. However, he was caught and the bag recovered.

The bag was found to contain about five grams of cocaine, and a search of the vehicle produced a small quantity of marijuana, the report added.

In addition to a controlled-substance possession and a third-degree escape charge, Anderson was charged with marijuana possession, tampering with physical evidence, driving on a suspended license and disregarding a traffic-control device.

He was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.

Mickle A. Oakley, 56, no permanent address, also was arrested Saturday and charged in connection with a December burglary and assault.

On Dec. 29, police responded to the Hines Motel on Big Hill Avenue after receiving the report of a domestic disturbance in which a male suspect was wielding a baseball bat.

Upon arrival, officers made contact with a female victim who told them Oakley, her ex-boyfriend, had assaulted her. They also learned the victim had ordered Oakley from her room, the police report stated.

Oakley left but returned later and knocked on the door. When the victim did not respond, Oakley forced the door open and entered, the report added. An argument ensued, and Oakley choked her and struck her in the face with a softball bat, the woman told police.

Oakley fled prior to police arrival. Officers observed damage to the room door and minor injuries to victim, including a mark below the eye where she was struck by the bat, the report stated. However, she did not require medical attention.

A warrant was issued Jan. 8 for Oakley’s arrest, charging him with first-degree burglary, fourth-degree assault and third-degree criminal mischief. He was located Saturday at the motel where he  was taken into custody without incident and lodged in the detention center, according to the police report.

Another Saturday arrest involved Conley Bryan McIntosh, 26, Greens Crossing Road, on the strength of a parole violation warrant.

In June 2011, McIntosh was convicted in Madison Circuit Court on two counts of first-degree possession of a controlled substance (cocaine) and sentenced to 10 years in prison as a persistent felony offender. The charges were reduced from trafficking offenses.

In July 2011, McIntosh was granted shock probation and placed on five years’ probation.

In November 2012, McIntosh violated the conditions of his probation and the original sentence of 10 years imprisonment was imposed, the police report stated. Then on Jan. 2, 2014, he was paroled.

On March 26, a parole-violation warrant was issued for McIntosh after he violated conditions of parole by absconding from supervision, failing to attend treatment for substance abuse, and failing to report to his parole officer.

RPD officers served the parole-violation warrant on McIntosh at the detention center where he was incarcerated on unrelated charges, the police report stated.

On Sunday, police charged Renea L. Wallen, 32, of Stanton, with theft after responding to a shoplifting report at Kroger.

At about 7:19 p.m., an officer was dispatched to  the supermarket and located Wallen inside tearing open packages and concealing merchandise in her purse, the police report stated. She was detained and $517.28 worth of goods were found concealed in the purse. A search of her vehicle produced three syringes, the report added.

Wallen was charged with felony theft by unlawful taking ($500 to $10,000), second-degree criminal mischief and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to contact the Richmond Police Department at 623-1162.
