Richmond police charge four with drug offenses

Richmond Police

RICHMOND —

Richmond police were dispatched to the 2000 block of Edgewood Drive on Tuesday evening to conduct a welfare check but ended up arresting one person and citing another on drug charges, according to Police Chief Larry Brock.

Upon arrival, officers made contact with Chad D. Thomas, 31, of Concord Road, and discovered two syringes and a small bag of suspected methamphetamine in his jacket, Brock stated in a news release.

Thomas was charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia possession. He was booked into the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Wednesday evening without bond.

Another person in the residence, Cayenne N. Reams, aka Cayenne Estepp, 19, of Battlefield Memorial Highway, Berea, was charged with drug paraphernalia possession after several plastic baggies, syringes and spoons with suspected drug residue were found under her control, the release stated.

She was cited and released.

Also Tuesday, Richmond police charged Cindy M. Hall, 58, Winchester, with numerous offenses following a shoplifting incident, according to the release.

At approximately 3:30 p.m., an officer was dispatched to Kohl’s on the Martin Bypass to investigate a shoplifting compliant. Upon arrival, officers learned that Hall had been detained by store employees after they said she attempted to leave the store without paying for merchandise worth $141.

Hall resisted the officer’s attempt to arrest her and created a disturbance in the store by yelling and screaming as she was being removed from the premises, the police chief stated in the news release.

A search of her person produced two Lortab pills, the release stated. Police later determined Hall had attempted to dispose of a stolen bracelet in the rear of the police cruiser in which she was transported.

She was charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia possession, theft by unlawful taking (under $500), menacing, resisting arrest, tampering with physical evidence, second-degree disorderly conduct and driving on a suspended license.

Hall was booked into the detention center and released Wednesday on a $2,500 unsecured third-party bond.

On Monday evening, Richmond police charged Heather N. King, 27, Wellington Court, with drug and other offenses after responding to a complaint of drug use in the Walmart parking lot.

At about 5:30 p.m., an officer dispatched to investigate the complaint encountered King sitting in an idling vehicle in the lot, according to the police news release.

Upon checking her driver’s status, the officer found that King was operating on a suspended driver’s license, the release stated. King was taken into custody after she resisted the officer’s efforts to arrest her, it also stated.

After she was secured, a search of King’s vehicle produced a small baggie of suspected methamphetamine, a small baggie of suspected heroin, four loose prescription pills, numerous spoons with suspected drug residue and a syringe.

She was charged with two counts of first degree possession of a controlled substance, illegal possession of a legend drug, drug paraphernalia possession, resisting arrest and operating on a suspended driver’s license.

She was booking into the detention center, and release Tuesday on a $5,000 cash bond.

Also on Monday, Richmond police charged Gary W. Pingleton, 38, of Race Street, in connection with a 2006 forgery.

An arrest warrant had been issued for Pingleton in September 2006 after the owner of Discount Tobacco on East Main Street filed a complaint alleging Pingleton had passed a $500 forged check at the business.

He was located Monday in the 4000 block of North Cross Pointe Court and taken into custody without incident, according to the police news release.

He was charged with second degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and booked into the detention center.

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