Man charged with identity theft

Three get hindering apprehension citations

RICHMOND — Jason Lear, 29, of Paint Lick, was charged Monday with identity theft, and three others were cited on charges of hindering apprehension after Richmond police said they were hiding him in a room in the Red Roof Inn.

Officers were dispatched to the Knights Inn at about 9:30 a.m. in response to a report of an unresponsive woman in one of the rooms, according to a Richmond Police Department news release.

They encountered Lear, who falsely identified himself using his brother’s name and identifiers, the release stated. After the woman, Ashley Rayborn, 24, of Stanford, was taken to Baptist Health hospital, the officers left.

Shortly after, the officers learned Lear’s true identity and that warrants had been issued for his arrest, according to the report.

They tracked Lear to a room at the Red Roof Inn, where they encountered three men who denied Lear was in the room. However, a search found him hiding under the bed, the report stated.

He was taken into custody without incident and lodged in the Madison County Detention Center, where he was served with Madison County warrant for flagrant non-support, and three bench warrants from Lincoln District Court, one for probation violation and two for contempt.

The three other men were cited on misdemeanor charges of hindering apprehension.

After Rayborn was treated and released from the hospital, she was then taken into custody on the strength of two Lincoln District Court warrants, one alleging contempt of court and other alleging probation violation.

She also was charged with drug paraphernalia possession after officers discovered a cut ink pen and a used syringe in her purse, the police report stated.

Rayborn also was taken to the detention center, where she and Lear both remained Tuesday evening, according to the detention center website.
