Robbery suspect arrested on Turpin Drive

Richmond Crimes

RICHMOND —

A man who was identified as a robbery suspect from photos posted on the Richmond Police Department’s Facebook page was apprehended Friday night on Turpin Drive.

William H. Taylor, 32, of Norwood Drive, was charged with second-degree robbery on the strength of an arrest warrant.

Taylor also had three syringes in his pocket, one of which contained suspected methamphetamine, and two small bags of suspected methamphetamine, according to an RPD news release.

Taylor additionally was charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

On Dec. 15, officers responded to a call at Kroger about a shoplifter who was fleeing the store, according to the release.

The officers learned the man had attempted to leave the store without paying for $79 in merchandise. When the man was confronted by an employee, he shoved the worker and fled on foot, the release stated.

Officers were not able to find the suspect in the area.

The RPD posted pictures of the man on its Facebook site, which generated “numerous tips” that identified Taylor as the suspect, according to the release.

A follow-up investigation confirmed Taylor’s identity, and an arrest warrant on the charge of second-degree robbery was issued Jan. 10.

At 8:39 p.m. Friday, Taylor was spotted by a patrol officer while walking on Turpin Drive. He was taken into custody without incident and taken to the Madison County Detention Center.
