Two found passed out in drive-thru

RICHMOND — Richmond Police were dispatched to Hardee’s on S. Keeneland Drive to investigate a report of two people passed out in a vehicle in the restaurant’s drive-thru lane, according to an RPD news release.

Daniel Wafford, 50, of Sara Leigh Drive, was attempting to order food when employees “realized that he was out of sorts,” said Chief Larry Brock.

The responding officer discovered Wafford had an existing warrant from Fayette County charging him with theft by failure to make required disposition of property, which is a felony, police said. 

After being taken into custody, a search of Wafford uncovered 17 oxycodone pills, 33 1/2 methadone pills, 10 alprazolam pills, 21 Neurontin pills, 117 Naproxen pills, eight amlodipine pills and a syringe.

Wafford was charged with three counts of second-degree possession of a controlled substance; three counts of illegal possession of a legend drug; possession of drug paraphernalia; and prescription controlled substance not in the proper container, the report stated.

Wafford is being held at the Madison County Detention Center on a $2,500 unsecured third-party bond, according to jail personnel.

Man pawns borrowed television

In early May, a complainant reported that she loaned a Vizio 42-inch television, valued at $788, to Nicholas E. Collins, 26, N. Third Street, on April 4, according to the RPD report.

Later that month, the complainant sent a relative to retrieve the television from Collins and although he allegedly said he still had the television, he refused to return it, the report stated.

Police discovered that Collins had pawned the television on April 19. The television was recovered and returned to the rightful owner, police said.

A warrant, charging him for theft by unlawful taking ($500 to $10,000), was issued May and he was arrested May 19.

A bench warrant from Madison District Court charging Collins for failure to appear also was served on him, the report stated.

Collins is being held at the jail on a $1,000 cash bond, according to jail records.
