RPD: Man gets shorts stolen, contained cash and iPhone

RICHMOND — An early morning theft Monday left one Richmond man without his shorts, which contained $1,288 in cash and a white iPhone 4, according to a Richmond Police Department news release.

A resident in the 400 block of Big Hill Avenue reported that he was robbed as he was leaving his apartment at approximately 1 a.m.

The victim said two men dressed in all black seized him as he was about to enter his vehicle, placed something over his head and wrestled him to the ground.

The two men removed his khaki plaid shorts and fled the scene on foot, the release stated.

The victim could provide no further description of the suspects. The estimated loss is $1,493.

Man charged with stealing firearms from pickup truck

On Saturday, a man parked in the CVS pharmacy lot reported two firearms were stolen from a rack mounted inside the rear window of his pickup truck, according to the RPD release.

Entry was gained by breaking the rear window of the truck and a Ruger .22 caliber rifle and a Bushmaster .223 caliber rifle were stolen for an estimated loss of $1,400.

Two days later, a patrol officer spotted Christopher T. Denny, 19, of North Second Street, exit a vehicle on North Second Street and carry a rifle into a nearby apartment building, according to the release.

The officer was familiar with the Saturday theft and searched the apartment Denny was seen entering. Officers discovered the stolen rifle, arrested Denny and charged him with possession of a stolen firearm, the police report stated.

Denny was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center but released later that night on a unsecured third-party bond, according to jail records.
