RICHMOND — Richmond man charged with meth making

Police charged Samuel Hensley, 48, of Richmond, Thursday with manufacturing methamphetamine after bike patrol officers investigated suspicious activity at the rear of the Manhattan Club on East Water Street.

According to the release, officers encountered Hensley and determined a warrant existed for his arrest for failure to appear in court. He was taken into custody. While searching his vehicle, officers reported finding items commonly used to make methamphetamine, including pseudofedrine pills, large Ziploc baggies, coffee filters, ammonium nitrate, hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol, acetone, butane fuel, lye, Heet and plastic tubing.

Hensley was lodged in the detention center, where he remained Monday evening, according to the jail’s online records.

Woman charged with burglary, drug possession

Amanda J. Burns, 30, of Winburn Drive, was charged Sunday with third-degree burglary, possession of a legend drug and operating on a suspended license after an officer was called to Walmart on a shoplifting complaint.

According to the release, the officer was dispatched to the store about 10:40 a.m. Upon arrival, the officer learned from witnesses that employees observed Burns attempt to leave without paying for $165 worth of merchandise. When employees attempted to detain Burns, she left the items and entered a vehicle. She then threatened to run over an employee attempting to prevent her from leaving, and fled the scene.

Later that afternoon officers found Burns in the suspect vehicle in the 900 block of Red House Road. They then determined she had been banned from the Walmart in 2011. Officers also found she had been driving on a suspended license, and was in possession of medication prescribed to another party, the release stated.

Burns was lodged in the detention center, where she remained Monday evening, according to the jail’s online records.
