RPD: Man charged with felony theft after taking iPhone

RICHMOND — A man who made off with another person’s iPhone after he asked to make a call with it was charged Saturday with felony theft, according to Richmond police.

Curtis M. Sparks, 27, of Burton Lane, was charged with theft by unlawful taking (over $500) and theft by deception.

A complainant reported Oct. 27 that he’d allowed Sparks to make a phone call on his iPhone 4S while at Pally’s Beer and Liquor on Water Street, and Sparks had fled without returning the phone.

Police were able to determine that Sparks transferred the phone to a third party for $75 shortly after the theft was reported, according to an RPD news release. A warrant was then obtained for Sparks’ arrest.

Sparks was found Saturday on Keystone Drive and taken into custody without incident. The phone was recovered and held as evidence.

The second person was a short, heavy-set white female with brown hair and wearing a pink hoodie with UK on the front.

The couple fled the scene in a small, black extended-cab pickup truck.
