Police canine tracks man who fled from officer

RICHMOND — A man who fled from police in a car that had been reported stolen was arrested Friday after a police K9 was able to track him to his hiding spot in a tall stand of grass.

Dustin Isaacs, 23, of Fifth Street, was charged with receiving stolen property (over $10,000), first-degree fleeing and evading police and driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.

Richmond police officers were told early Friday morning to be on the lookout for a stolen white 2003 Volkswagen. The vehicle had been reported stolen from Wayne Drive just before midnight, according to an RPD news release.

Shortly thereafter, an officer spotted the vehicle traveling west on East Irvine Street. The officer attempted to stop the car but the driver, later identified as Isaacs, failed to yield and continued to drive, according to the release.

The vehicle proceeded to make several turns in the Hill Street and Four Mile Avenue area before driving onto the railroad tracks and becoming stuck.  

The officer reported that Isaacs then fled from the vehicle on foot. Officers lost sight of Isaacs in a tree line and requested assistance from the K-9 unit.  

A canine handler arrived and used his dog to track Isaacs, who was found a short time later in a tall stand of grass, the news release stated.

Former McCready Manor employee charged with theft from resident

Police charged Lori Neville, 39, of Spurlin Motor Home Park, in connection with a jewelry theft that occurred in March 2013.

A complainant reported July 18 that two rings had been stolen from a relative’s room at McCready Manor during early March 2013.

The stolen items were a 14K gold diamond wedding band with two diamonds on each side and a 14K gold diamond solitaire ring. The rings are estimated to be worth $1,700.

The RPD follow-up investigation revealed that Neville, an employee of McCready Manor at the time, had been in possession of the two stolen rings and transferred them to another party shortly after the theft, according to a police news release.

The rings were subsequently recovered from the third party.

Neville was interviewed Saturday at the police station after which she was charged for receiving stolen property (under $10,000) and theft by deception (under $500). She was taken to the Madison County Detention Center.
