Woman steals, wrecks car


BEREA — Richmond police charged Della M. Tribble, 54, Smith Village, on Sunday with several offenses in connection with the theft of a vehicle.

At 8:56 p.m., a relative reported that she was giving Tribble a ride home when the relative had to stop at her own residence briefly. The relative entered her residence while leaving the keys in the vehicle she was driving.  

When she returned to the vehicle, Tribble had moved to the driver’s seat and locked the doors, according to the relative. Despite the relative’s warning to Tribble that she was not allowed to take the vehicle, Tribble allegedly drove away with the vehicle without authority to do so.  

A short time later, Tribble was involved in a minor traffic accident at Lancaster Avenue and West Main Street at which time she was taken into custody.

Upon arrival at the detention center, it was discovered that Tribble was attempting to ingest several Xanax pills, the RPD reported. She was stopped and 12 of the pills were recovered.  

Tribble was charged with theft by unlawful taking (auto), tampering with physical evidence and prescription drug not in proper container.

The vehicle was returned to the relative from whom it was taken.        

Other arrests:

• Aaron D. Folden, 25, Todd Lane, was charged Sunday with receiving stolen property in connection with a theft that occurred in April.

A resident of Spurlin Mobile Home Park reported April 27 that several pieces of jewelry had been stolen from her residence during the previous two months. The items included three rings and a pair of earrings with a total value of $700. Folden was identified as a visitor to the residence and a possible suspect in the theft.

The follow-up investigation revealed that Folden was in possession of the stolen jewelry in late March 2013 and had transferred the items to another party, according to the RPD report.  

The investigating officer recovered the stolen property and on April 29, a warrant was issued for Folden’s arrest, charging him with receiving stolen property (over $500) and receiving stolen property (under $500).

The warrant was served Sunday on Folden at the Madison County Detention Center where he was incarcerated on other charges.

At 5:36 p.m., an officer was dispatched to Park Federal Credit Union to investigate a report of a possible forgery. Upon arrival, the officer reported encountering Mink and determined that he had taken a personal check from a relative. He had then forged the relative’s name on the check and attempted to cash it for $75, according to the RPD report.

Mink was charged with second-degree forgery and taken to the Madison County Detention Center.
