‛Good Samaritans’ take motorist’s gun

RICHMOND — Two people reported the theft of firearms from their vehicles earlier this week.

A man told police Tuesday that his gun, a silver-colored Jimenez Arms .22 caliber pistol, was taken by two men who seemed like Good Samaritans.

The victim was driving in the area of Race Street, trying to find Auto Zone, when he encountered two men and asked for directions, according to a Richmond Police Department news release.

The two men offered to help by accompanying the driver to the store. Once they arrived at the store, one of the men and the driver went inside, leaving the second man in the vehicle, the release stated.

After visiting the store, the driver dropped the two men off in the area of Ashland Avenue. A short time later, the driver discovered his gun, worth $120, was missing from the vehicle.

The first suspect is a 30- to 50-year-old white male, 180 pounds and 5 feet, 10 inches tall. He goes by the name Eddie and has a dark-colored beard with gray in it.

The victim described the second suspect as a 25- to 30-year-old white male who is also 5 feet, 10 inches tall. He went by the name “D.”

In the second firearm theft, a resident in the 500 block of Blue Spruce Drive reported Monday that two of his vehicles had been unlawfully entered during the night and several items were missing. They were a Marlin .243 caliber bolt action rifle, $5 in loose change, a Garmin GPS unit and an iPhone 3.

There were no signs of forced entry, according the RPD. Estimated loss is $730.

Homes burglarized on Aster Court and Lancaster Avenue

A resident in the 800 block of Aster Court reported Tuesday that his unsecured home had been entered during the night and several items were taken, including a white Xbox 360 gaming system, a black Toshiba Satellite 17-inch laptop computer, a black Motorola Zoom tablet with a 10-inch screen and a Madden 2013 Xbox video game.

Estimated loss is $1,410.

Also Tuesday, a resident in the 300 block of Lancaster Avenue reported that his apartment had been broken into during the early morning and a Compaq LCD monitor and a DaVinci bass box was stolen.

Entry was made by forcing open the front door. Estimated loss is $400.

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call the Richmond Police Department at 623-1162.
