Dry cleaner burglary suspect is charged in two other cases

RICHMOND — A man charged Friday with breaking into Jack’s Cleaners on Water Street by smashing a window with a tire iron has been charged with two other burglaries in which a similar method was used to gain entry.

Scott Hobbs, 42, of McKee, is facing two additional counts of third-degree burglary involving break-ins earlier Friday at Personal Touch Cleaners on Wayne Drive and Doggie Livin’ on  St. George Street.

About 25 minutes prior to the break-in at Jack’s, a Richmond police officer discovered that Doggie Livin’ had been entered via a broken glass door. While the interior of pet-grooming business had been disturbed, nothing was found to be missing, according to the police report.

The officer then discovered a broken glass door at Personal Touch Cleaners. There two cash drawers, containing an unspecified amount of money, were missing.

The cash drawers were in found in Hobbs’ vehicle, according to the police report.

Hobbs remained in the Madison County Detention Center under a $25,000 bond Monday evening, according to a jail officer.



Two charged in theft of television

Jason Osborne, 33, of Wellington Court, and Pernell Evans, 48, of Bellevue Drive, were arrested in connection with an unlawful entry and forceful removal of a television Friday from an apartment on Hampton Way.

According to a Richmond police news release, Osborne and Evans gained entry by forcing open the residence’s back door. Once inside, the two removed a 50-inch television. Osborne was reported to have been armed with a tire iron, and he allegedly punched a resident several times in the face with his fist.

Officers who responded to investigate a burglary in progress said they observed Osborne and Evans fleeing the scene and detained them.

A search of their vehicle produced several syringes, burnt aluminum foil, spoons with white powder residue and a bag of what police suspect to be heroin, according to the release. Osborne also is alleged to have discarded a small bag of suspected methamphetamine after he was detained.

Osborne is charged with first-degree robbery, two counts of first-degree possession of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest.

Evans is charged with first-degree robbery, and he was served a summons on a third-degree terroristic threatening in an unrelated incident.

Both were lodged in the detention center where they remained Monday evening, according to online jail records.
