RPD: Woman bit Kroger employee

Richmond Crimes

RICHMOND — A shoplifting incident became a felony robbery case Monday after police say a Muleshed Lane woman bit a Kroger employee who was attempting to detain her.

Rebecca McKnight, 40, was charged with second-degree robbery Monday afternoon and taken to the Madison County Detention Center.

Officers were dispatched to Kroger after receiving a report about employees attempting to detain a shoplifting suspect, according to a Richmond Police Department news release.

Kroger employees told the officers McKnight tried to leave the store without paying for $286 in groceries, the release stated. When the workers tried to detain McKnight, “she became combative and bit one of the employees on the hand, causing a minor injury,” according to the release.

Berea woman faces drug charges

A Berea woman remained in jail Tuesday facing several drug charges following a traffic stop by an RPD officer.

At 8:38 p.m. Monday, an officer pulled a vehicle over near Big Hill Avenue and the Eastern Bypass, according to an RPD news release.

The officer noticed a rear seat passenger, Candi L. Wright, 28 of Silver Creek Road in Berea, “moving around and bent forward toward the floorboard,” the release stated.

The officer discovered that Wright had a bench warrant on a probation violation charge from Fayette County, and she was taken into custody.

Six Roxicodone pills, two Xanax pills and a small tube with white powder residue was found inside the vehicle, according to the news release.

Wright was charged with first-degree drug possession, third-degree drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Other crime:

• A resident in the 200 block of Keystone Drive reported Sunday that his apartment had been broken into over the weekend. Entry was gained by breaking a rear window, according to the RPD. The missing items, worth a total of $630, were a Silo 32-inch LCD television, a black Xbox 360 gaming system with two games and six to eight DVDs of children’s movies.
