Five arrested in cases involving released suspects

RICHMOND — Richmond Police arrested four people Monday and Tuesday in two separate cases that involved violations of probation or parole.

Arthur Caldwell, 39, was arrested and charged with violating his parole May 7 by absconding from parole supervision.

Tuesday, officers received a tip that Caldwell could be located in the 300 block of Turpin Drive, according to an RPD report.

When they arrived at the residence, the officers made contact with Marcus and Terry Caldwell who denied that Arthur was there. When police entered the residence, however, Arthur ran from the back and was taken into custody, the report stated.

Caldwell was convicted Jan. 31, 2011, in Madison Circuit Court of first-degree controlled substance possession and sentenced to two years in prison.

In late March 2011, Caldwell was released on shock probation with four years’ supervision.

Then in November 2011, Caldwell was convicted of manufacturing meth and was sentenced to another three years in prison. In addition, his probation was revoked and he was ordered to also serve the remainder of his original sentence.

A year later, however, Caldwell was convicted in the Kenton Circuit Court on another controlled substance possession charge and was sentenced to an additional 18 months, consecutive to his other sentences.

Then in February 2013, Rockcastle Circuit Court convicted Caldwell of second-degree escape and sentenced him to one year in prison, added to his other time.

However, Caldwell was paroled March 3, but eluded supervision May 7, the police report stated.

In addition to Caldwell being taken into custody, Marcus and Terry Caldwell were arrested on second-degree hindering apprehension charges and possession of drug paraphernalia.

All three were taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where Arthur Caldwell remained Wednesday afternoon without bond, Marcus and Terry were released later Tuesday, according to the jail’s online record.

Man charged in

series of thefts

Police charged a Richmond man Tuesday in connection with two thefts.

A complainant told police May 19 a lawn mower was stolen from the back of his pickup truck while he was shopping at Richmond Mall.

Investigators found the lawn mower, and determined it was stolen my Mark Bush, 35, who transferred it to a third party shortly after it was taken, the police report stated. A warrant was issued May 21 for his arrest on charges of theft by deception and receiving stolen property (under $500).

A patron of D&G Food Mart told police May 24 that her purse had been stolen from her vehicle while she was inside shopping. Investigators identified Bush as the suspect.

On Tuesday morning, police located Bush at a Sizemore Drive residence, where he was taken into custody on the two theft charges. He also was charged with violating the terms of his release in a pending felony case, the police report added.

A Madison County grand jury indicted Bush in September on two counts of second-degree arson. He was released on his own recognizance with conditions in February, but a bench warrant was issued March 27 charging him with violating terms of his release, the report stated.

Bush remained in the detention center Wednesday afternoon on $1,000 cash bond.

Bike patrol makes drug arrest on Ballard Drive

At approximately 7 p.m. Tuesday, officers heard David Farmer, 38, yell to others in the area that police were present, according to a police  report. They also observed Farmer trying to conceal a syringe, it added.

When the officers made contact with Farmer, they found a small packet of heroin on his person and charged him with first-degree controlled substance possession, the report stated.

He was taken to the detention center where he remained Wednesday afternoon on a $5,000 cash bond, according to jail personnel.

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to contact Richmond Police at 623-1162.
