$250,000 wrecker stolen

RICHMOND — A representative of Barger’s Wrecking Service, North Porter Drive, reported to Richmond police Sunday that a black, 1996 Peterbilt wrecker with company logos on it was stolen from the business’ parking lot. The wrecker is valued at $250,000, according to the police report.

• Virginia L. Walker, 31, North Third Street, was taken unto custody Monday after a traffic stop on Lexington Road and charged in connection with the passing of a bogus money order in June.

On June 3, a complainant told police a relative asked him to help her cash a postal money order. According to the report, Walker told him she needed someone with a bank account to help her cash a $990 money order, which he cashed at his bank June 28.

On July 3, the bank informed him the money order was counterfeit, and he reported it to police.

A warrant was issued for Walker’s arrest in August, charging her with second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and theft by deception under $10,000.

She was lodged in the Madison County Deten-tion Center.

Other police reports


A complainant reported that his home was broken into during the late afternoon or early evening. Entry was gained by forcing open the back door. A 42-inch Samsung plasma television valued at $600 was reported missing.


A Richmond man was charged Friday with stealing from his employer.

Police charged Anthony C. Gardner, 33, of Norwood Drive, with fraudulent use of a credit card after his employer, East Main Auto Sales, reported the unauthorized use of a company credit card.

The company owner told investigating officers that Gardner had been making unauthorized purchases with the card.

Gardner was authorized to use the credit card only to refuel company vehicles, the business owner said, but he discovered Gardner had made $822 in unauthorized purchases during the previous six weeks.

Gardner was taken into custody, charged with fraudulent use of a credit card ($500 to $10,000) and booked into the Madison County Detention Center.

• James G. McKinney, 37, East Main Street, was charged with burglary after a shoplifting incident at Walmart.

Store employees told officers they detained McKinney after they observed him attempting to leave the store without paying for $134 in merchandise.

Officers later learned that McKinney had been banned from the store after two previous shoplifting incidents.

McKinney’s entry into the store to commit a theft after having been banned from the premises resulted in his arrest on a third-degree burglary charge, according to the police report.

• Jennifer D. Bogie, 32, Simpson Lane, was charged with several drug offenses after a traffic stop.

Officers stopped a vehicle driven by Bogie on Ballard Drive after observing it disregard a stop sign, the police report stated.

Bogie was arrested after officers learned she had two outstanding bench warrants for failure to appear.

During a search of her vehicle, officers said they discovered a pill bottle containing 22 clonazepam pills and 45 Gabapentin pills.

Bogie was charged with illegal possession of a legend drug, trafficking in legend drugs and third-degree possession of a controlled substance, in addition to the warrant charges, and booked into the detention center.
