A Richmond man told police early Friday morning that he was robbed at gunpoint while unloading items from his vehicle on Oldham Avenue.
Two men approached him, and one took several items from the vehicle while the other pointed a handgun on him, according to the Richmond police report.
Items taken were a Remington 20-gauge shotgun, model 1100LT-20; an in-line muzzle-loading rifle with a scope, silver barre, and a camouflage stock; a set of TaylorMade golf clubs in a green bag; and a Nikon range finder. Estimated loss is $2,450.
After removing the items, the two men fled in an older-style black Chevrolet Impala with tinted windows and 20- to 22-inch rims.
The suspects were described as:
• A black male about 6 feet, 4 inches tall, slender build, wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt, armed with a handgun.
• A black male about 6 feet tall, wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt with “Chicago Bulls” emblazoned on the back and dark-colored baggy, blue jeans with a cross pattern on the back of the pants.
Car deal turns into a drive off
A Louisville man was charged Wednesday in connection with the theft of a vehicle that wasn’t returned from a test drive.
Richmond police were dispatched at 1:21 p.m. to the Lexington Road Shell where they were met by a complainant who reported that his black 2003 Ford Explorer, Kentucky license plate 403-APP, had just been stolen.
The victim said he had advertised the vehicle on Craigslist, the free online advertising site, and received a response from a man who wanted to test drive it.
The complainant met the potential buyer and a second man, Bruce K. Craig Jr., 23, of Louisville, at the College Park Shopping Center on Leighway Drive, according to the police report.
The potential buyer and the owner drove north on Interstate 75 with Craig following in another vehicle. Both vehicles stopped at the Lexington Road Shell Station for the complainant to fuel his vehicle. But when he entered the station to pay for the fuel, the potential buyer drove away with the vehicle and did not return, the police report stated.
Craig was left behind and taken into custody by police. He was charged with criminal facilitation of theft by unlawful taking and taken to the Madison County Detention Center.
Police then determined that the vehicle being driven by Craig was owned by the potential buyer who had fled with the complainant’s vehicle.
Neither the other suspect nor the stolen vehicle has been located. Estimated loss is $2,000.
Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call the Richmond Police Department at 623-1162.
