Gray accused of pulling BB gun on repo man

Richmond crimes

RICHMOND — An Irvine man faces several charges after Richmond police say he pulled a BB gun on a person who was repossessing his vehicle.

Ronnie J. Gray, 47, was charged Sunday with first-degree wanton endangerment, menacing and tampering with physical evidence.

Officers responded to a call at 9:49 p.m. about a disturbance in the 200 block of Keystone Drive, according to an RPD report.

The complainant told the officers that he was in the process of repossessing Gray’s vehicle when an argument ensued, and Gray pulled a gun. He pointed it toward the complainant, the report stated.

Gray also is accused of asking a family member to take the weapon and hide it inside a residence before police arrived.

When officers found the weapon, it turned out to be a Marksman BB gun, the report stated.

McDonald’s worker aids in arrest of alleged counterfeiter

An observant McDonald’s worker was able to help police catch a man who is accused of trying to pass a counterfeit bill.

Ronnie K. Johnson, 28, of Jenkins, was charged Friday with 10 counts of first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, illegal possession of a legend drug and possession of drug paraphernalia.

An employee of the McDonald’s on Brandy Lane reported at 8:13 a.m. that a man tried to pass the counterfeit bill at the drive-thru to pay for his food, according to the RPD report.

When the worker told man the bill would not be accepted, the man drove away.

Officers were able to find the vehicle, driven by Johnson, at the nearby Exxon Friendly Mart, the report stated. Johnson was detained and the arresting officers reported finding nine more counterfeit $20s in his possession. He also is alleged to have had a needle and Gabapentin pill on him.

Men charged with stealing vacuums served with multiple warrants

Two men who police believe made more than one trip to Walmart to shoplift Dyson vacuum cleaners were caught Friday after a short foot case.

Roger D. Henry, 39, of Ravenna, and Jerry Henry, 37, of Irvine, were arrested after a representative of Walmart told police the two men had attempted to leave the store without paying for two vacuum cleaners worth a total of nearly $400.

When employees tried to stop the two men, they abandoned the shopping cart with the vacuums in it and fled on foot, the RPD report stated. An officer found the Henrys a short time later on Boggs Lane.

During their investigation, Richmond police determined the two men had committed a similar theft just three days before, according to the report. On that day, the men were able to leave the store with two Dyson vacuum cleaners worth a total of $878.

Roger Henry had previously been banned from the Walmart premises, so he was charged with two counts of third-degree burglary.

Jerry Henry was charged with theft by unlawful taking (under $500) and theft by unlawful taking (over $500).

Also, Roger Henry was wanted on a parole violation warrant. Since 2008, he has been convicted  of  various drug trafficking and theft charges in Madison and Estill circuit courts.

He was paroled Aug. 1, 2011, and the parole violation warrant was issued April 3. He is accused of violating several conditions of release, including absconding parole supervision and failure to report a change of address.

Jerry Henry also had eight bench warrants served on him for contempt of court (failure to appear and/or failure to pay court costs) from Madison and Estill district courts.
