Man charged with robbing check-cashing business

RICHMOND — Richmond police charged Anthony L. Ray, 35, of Fourth Street with first-degree robbery Friday after employees at Cash Tyme Cash Advance said they surrendered money to him at knifepoint.

According to an RPD report, officers were dispatched to the business about 2:46 p.m. Upon arrival, employees told the officers a man had entered the business, brandished a knife and demanded money. The employees said they gave the man an undisclosed amount of cash and he fled.

The officers obtained a description of the man’s vehicle and stopped him on East Main Street near CVS Pharmacy. According to the report, officers found Ray operating the vehicle with the stolen money and a knife also inside.

Previous robberies in the area, which include convenience and check-cashing stores, are being examined to determine if Ray is a suspect, the report stated.

Ray was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Monday afternoon, according to the jail’s online records.

Brockton Street man charged in credit card/identity theft

Devincent J. Deterra, 27, of Brockton Street, was charged Jan. 20 with several theft offenses and fourth-degree assault after allegedly stealing a credit card.

According to the report, officers responded Jan. 19 to Walmart to investigate a reported assault and theft. They met with a woman who told them that earlier in the day she had eaten at the Richmond Centre Olive Garden and inadvertently left her credit card at the restaurant after paying. When she realized the mistake and returned to Olive Garden, she could not find the card.

A short time later, the woman received notice that her credit card was being used at Walmart to make a purchase of more than $700. She went to the store where she found Deterra, whom she recognized as the waiter who served her at Olive Garden, pushing a cart with a television in it, the report stated.

The woman confronted Deterra, suspecting he had stolen the card. During the the confrontation, Deterra shoved her to the ground, injuring her shoulder and giving her a bloody nose, the report stated. However, the injuries did not require medical attention.

Deterra then put the television in a vehicle and left the scene, according to the report. He later was questioned by police at his residence, but was not detained. However, when officers returned the next day, they discovered Deterra had returned the television to the Berea Walmart. The report stated officers were unsure at that point if Deterra had received credit from the store, or if credit was posted to the card account.

Police again questioned Deterra and then charged with theft of a credit card, theft of identity, theft by deception of less than $10,000 and fourth-degree assault.

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