RICHMOND — Richmond police on Thursday charged Melissa Potter, 30, of Bruin Trace Road, connection with a theft of $4,000 worth of collectibles from Dargavell’s Towing on Big Hill Avenue that was reported earlier that day.

The towing service owner reported a large number of Case XX knives, Zippo lighters and pocket watches had been stolen from the business during the past four days, according to a Richmond Police Department news release.
