Richmond police charged Michael T. Workman, 23, Kristen Drive, on Friday in connection with the theft of seven trailers within the city limits.

Workman originally had been arrested by the Madison County Sheriff’s Office for similar offenses in the county. The RPD follow-up investigation established that Workman had stolen seven trailers in the city between May and June, and he had sold or otherwise transferred the items to other parties, according to the report

The investigating detective obtained a warrant Thursday for Workman’s arrest, charging him with seven counts of theft by unlawful taking (more than $500). The thefts were:

• Trailer valued at $1,000 reported stolen May 29 from Lexington Road Church of God.

• Trailer valued at $1,600 reported stolen June 5 from 400 block of Summit Street.

• Trailer valued at $1,500 reported stolen June 5 from 200 block of Patsy Drive.

• Trailer valued at $700 reported stolen June 19 from 400 block of Midland Drive.

• Trailer valued at $1,000 reported stolen Aug. 5 from Grand Campus at Yorick Place construction site (Barnes Mill and Lancaster Avenue).

All but two of the trailers were recovered.

The warrant was served on Workman at the Madison County Detention Center where he was incarcerated on the previous charges from the sheriff’s department.
