Three Richmond businesses report burglaries

RICHMOND — Three Richmond businesses reported being broken into Saturday, and in all three cases, entry was gained by breaking out the glass on the stores’ doors.

A representative of Madison Flower Shop, 400 East Main St., reported to police that the business had been burglarized that morning and an undisclosed amount of cash was taken. Entry was gained by breaking the front-door glass, according to the RPD.

The second business to report a burglary was Concord Cleaners, 525 Eastern Bypass. A representative told police the store had been broken into between 6 p.m. the previous night and 4 a.m. Entry was gained by breaking the glass on the sliding door of the drive-thru area, according to the RPD.

A small amount of loose change was reported stolen.

The third business was Air Economics on West Irvine Street. The complainant told police the business had been broken into during the past 24 hours and five blank company checks were stolen.

Entry was gained by breaking the front-door glass.

Man arrested on parole-violation warrant

A Berea man who was released from jail last year after serving just a fraction of his felony sentences was arrested Friday on a parole-violation warrant.

Derick F. Damrell, 20, of Mount Vernon Road, was convicted Oct. 14, 2011, in Madison County for two counts of theft by unlawful taking (auto) and first-degree wanton endangerment. He was sentenced to five years in prison.

When Damrell was 19, he stole a 2004 Ford Mustang, which he admitted to when pleading guilty as part of his plea deal.

Damrell also was convicted of stealing a 2007 Suzuki in October 2010, two months prior to the Mustang’s theft.

In November 2011, Damrell was convicted in Rockcastle County of theft by unlawful taking, and he was sentenced to 18 months in prison to run concurrent with the Madison County sentence.    

Damrell was paroled June 1, according to the Richmond Police Department.

A parole-violation warrant was issued Jan. 23, alleging that Damrell violated several conditions of his release.

Richmond police officers found Damrell on Friday on Gibson Bay Drive, and he was arrested without incident. Damrell also was served with a bench warrant for failure to appear in a shoplifting case.
