Oakley Wells Road woman charged with receiving stolen property

RICHMOND — Kentucky State Police Thursday charged Lori Beth Murphy, 28, of Oakley Wells Road, with receiving stolen property worth more than $500 on the strength of a 2013 warrant.

According to a Richmond police report, a representative of WG&T Construction reported June 4 that a Bosch hammer drill belonging to the company was found in a local pawn shop. After investigating, RPD officers determined Murphy had pawned the drill, worth $519, the previous February. The drill had been stolen from the company, the report stated.

A warrant was issued for Murphy’s arrest June 25.

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

Couple charged in lottery ticket theft

Two people were charged Saturday with the theft of lottery tickets from the Berea Road Redi Mart.

Amber N. Fraley, 29, was charged with theft by unlawful taking ($500 to $10,000) and first-degree unlawful access to a computer.

Shawn Fraley, 39, also was charged with receiving stolen property (under $500), theft by deception (under $500) and first-degree unlawful access to a computer.

The charge involving the computer is a Class C felony punishable by five to 10 years in prison.

A Redi Mart representative told police Jan. 1 that an employee, Amber Fraley, had stolen 20 lottery tickets from the store.

Shawn Fraley, her husband, had cashed one of the stolen tickets for $25 at Kroger shortly after the theft, according to the RPD.

Warrants were issued Jan. 17 for the Fraleys, and the couple was encountered near the Richmond Mall this weekend and taken into custody.
