Richmond police arrest two on auto-theft charges

RICHMOND — Richmond police arrested two people Friday on auto-theft related charges and took the report of a third auto theft. Missing vehicles were recovered in the cases in which suspects were arrested, according to a news release from Police Chief Larry Brock.

William D. Hill Jr., 19, of North First Street, was charged in connection with the theft of an automobile and other items.

On Wednesday, a resident in the 200 block of Lancaster Avenue reported that his 2010 Lincoln MKZ sport utility vehicles, valued at $45,000, had been stolen from his residence during the night. A set of keys had been left inside a door of the vehicle along with a Garmin GPS unit and a set of golf clubs.

Just after 5 a.m. Friday, RPD officers were dispatched to the 1000 block of Brandy Lane to investigate a report that Hill was involved in a domestic disturbance there. The officers met with a woman who reported Hill had assaulted her and fled. However, he had left three backpacks that police recovered. The keys to the stolen Lincoln and the Garmin GPS unit from the vehicle were found in the backpacks, Brock stated in the release.

Early Friday afternoon, an officer observed Hill in the 100 block of South Keeneland Drive, the police report stated. The officer was aware that a bench warrant for Hill’s arrest for failure to appear had been issued. When the officer attempted to make contact with Hill, he fled on foot but was apprehended after a short pursuit.

Officers soon located the stolen Lincoln SUV nearby in the 300 block of Churchill Drive. 

After police questioned Hill, he was booked in the Madison County Detention Center on two counts of receiving stolen property as well as second-degree fleeing or evading police in connection with the recent events.

Hill also was charged with receiving stolen property under $500 in connection with his possession of a stolen GPS unit in July, according to the police report. The unit had been stolen from a vehicle in the 900 block of Southern Hills Drive. 

Also on Friday, Richmond police charged Alison L. Hampton, 32, of Merrick Drive, in connection with the misappropriation of a rental vehicle.

At approximately 7:53 p.m., officers were dispatched to the Carriage Gate Shopping Center on the Eastern Bypass to search for a stolen 2012 Chevrolet Equinox valued at $11,000.  The request came from the Louisville Metro Police who had taken a theft report on the vehicle.

RPD officers located the vehicle near the Hobby Lobby with Hampton in the driver’s seat, according to the RPD chief. She was taken into custody and charged with receiving stolen property ($10,000 or more). 

Richmond police also received a report Friday from a resident in the 1600 block of Foxhaven Drive who reported that her light green 1994 Chrysler New Yorker, KY license 785-DZC, had been stolen from an apartment complex parking lot sometime in the two previous days. The vehicle was not operational and witnesses reported seeing it being towed away, but they were unable to identify the towing company. No local companies reported towing the vehicle. Estimated loss is $500.

Anyone with information regarding the above listed cases is asked to contact the Richmond Police Department at 623-1162.
