Man charged in theft, destruction of van

RICHMOND — Richmond Police on Thursday charged Roger Thomas, 66, of Janwell Court with theft by unlawful taking in connection with a stolen van, according to an RPD news release.

The owner of a Janwell Drive property reported a 1992 Ford van worth $2,000 had been stolen from his driveway. The complainant told officers he had discovered Thomas had sold the van on Sept. 20 to Richmond Scrap Iron and it had been destroyed, the release stated.

An officer interviewed Thomas at the Madison County Detention Center, where he was incarcerated on unrelated theft charges. He was further charged after the interview, but was released later that day, according to the jail’s online records.

Woman charged with drug possession

Christine L. Heath, 42, of Nicholasville, was charged Saturday with several drug offenses and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol after officers stopped her in a Waffle House parking lot.

According to the release, a patrol officer observed a vehicle Heath was operating back improperly on North Keeneland Avenue about 1 a.m.

The officer made contact with Heath, determined she was under the influence, and transported her to the detention center, the police report stated.

While searching her purse, officers found four hydrocodone pills, one oxycodone pill, and one tramadol pill, the report added.

Heath was further charged with first-, second- and third-degree possession of a controlled substance and was lodged in the detention center, but was released  later the same day, according to the jail’s online records.
