RPD: Pills, meth, heroin found in felon’s vehicle



Other police reports

On Jan. 28, the owner of an apartment building under construction reported several pieces of steel rebar had been stolen from the site.

Around 8 p.m., a resident in the area saw two men in a dark-colored Jeep Grand Cherokee loading 16-foot steel rebar (5/8 inches in diameter) onto a black 12-foot trailer with a tall tailgate.

The witness confronted the two men who claimed they had been given permission to remove the items. The witness told the men the rebar did not belong to them and to unload it.

The two men unloaded a few pieces and then jumped in their vehicle and left with approximately 20 pieces of stolen rebar in the trailer, according to the police news release.

One suspect was described as a white male, 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds, in his mid-20s, wearing bib overalls and a light-colored hoodie. The second suspect (the driver) was described as a white male, 5 feet 6 inches, 180 pounds, in his mid-40s, wearing bib overalls and a light-colored hoodie.

The estimated loss is $400.

On Feb. 26, a resident in the 600 block of Martin Drive reported his residence had been unlawfully entered between Feb. 23 and 24. A Coke bottle-shaped coin bank with an Ohio State logo on it and a 750-milliliter bottle of Maker’s Mark whiskey was stolen. The coin bank contained approximately $400 in assorted change and bills. The estimated loss is $426.

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