RICHMOND — Woman hides stolen checkbook in police cruiser

Police charged Rebecca J. Kalman, 37, of E. Irvine Street, for several offenses in connection with passing stolen and forged checks.

After her arrest, she attempted to hide the stolen checkbook, that contained another forged check, in the rear of the police cruiser, according to Chief Brock.

On March 3, a resident in the 300 block of Overland Drive reported his home had been broken into during the early evening hours and a number of items were stolen.

The resident reported several blank checks were missing along with guns, ammunition, tools, a pocket watch and gold showcase knives, according to the RPD report.

During the investigation, police discovered Kalman had allegedly passed two of the stolen and forged checks at Murphy USA on two separate days totaling about $70.

Saturday, Kalman attempted to pass another check at the same location, after which she was located and interviewed at the police station, the release stated.

Kalman was arrested and transported to jail. Afterward, it was discovered she had attempted to hide the stolen checkbook in the police cruiser.  

Kalman was charged with four counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, three counts of theft by deception under $500, tampering with physical evidence and receiving stolen property under $500.

She remains incarcerated at the detention center on a $2,500 cash bond.

Richmond man charged with theft of vehicle from Mississippi

On Thursday, police were dispatched to the Kroger parking lot to investigate a report that a stolen 1998 Saturn was possibly located in the area.

The officer saw the vehicle matching the description with a man sitting inside. The vehicle had a Kentucky license plate that did not match the description of the stolen vehicle which prompted further investigation.

Edward O. Wardle, 49, of Lancaster Road, was observed leaving the vehicle but he was detained shortly thereafter, according to the police report.

Wardle had reportedly stolen the vehicle from an auto dealer in Picayune, Mississippi on Wednesday. The vehicle was impounded pending return to the rightful owner.

Wardle was charged with receiving stolen property under $10,000 and is incarcerated at the detention center on a $10,000 cash bond.
