RPD issues four drug charges since Thursday

RICHMOND — From Thursday through Sunday, Richmond police arrested or cited four people on drug charges, according to a news release from RPD Chief Larry Brock.

Early Sunday, police charged Curtis D. Collins, 33, of the Eastern Bypass, with illegal possession of a legend drug after investigating a report of suspicious activity.

At approximately 5:15 a.m., an officer observed two men in the area of Soft Shoe on the Eastern Bypass with flashlights and acting in a suspicious manner, according to an RPD news release. When the officer approached the two, one of them (later identified as Collins) fled on foot to a nearby apartment. Officers went to the apartment where they found Collins hiding under the bed. A search of Collins produced eight hydroxyzine pills, according to the police report. He was cited to court and released.

About 30 minutes after midnight Saturday, police charged Roger M. Million, Jr., 22, Ballard Drive, with a drug crime after responding to a disturbance call.

At approximately 12:30 a.m., officers responded to a residence in the 500 block of Ballard Drive to investigate a domestic disturbance.  Upon arrival, officers observed Million outside the residence arguing with a female, an RPD news release stated. Officers determined that Million was under the influence of alcohol and took him into custody for alcohol intoxication, RPD Chief Larry Brock stated in the release. He was taken to the Madison County Detention Center where officers recovered approximately three grams of suspected cocaine from Million’s person, the chief said.

Million was then charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance and lodged in the Madison County Detention Center. He was release about 14 hours later on a $5,000 unsecured, third-party bond.

Also early Saturday, police charged Darrell M. Walker, 42, Riva Ridge Drive, with illegal possession of a legend drug after investigating a suspicious vehicle, according to the RPD.

At approximately 3:20 a.m., an officer was investigating an occupied vehicle in the parking lot of 207 Geri Lane. Walker was identified as a passenger in the vehicle, and while he was temporarily detained, the officer recovered two gabapentin from his person, the RPD news release stated. Walker was cited and released.

On Thursday, Richmond police charged Glyndon McKinney, 53, of Kirksville Road, with a drug offense after he was arrested on a driving-under-the-influence charge.

At approximately 5:20 p.m., officers were dispatched to the area of Lexington Road and Keeneland Drive to investigate reports of a suspected drunk motorcycle driver in the area. Officers found McKinney on a motorcycle at Lexington Road and Keystone Drive, according to the police report.  Officers determined McKinney was intoxicated and charged him with DUI, the RPD chief stated in the release. A search of McKinney’s person produced a Xanax pill, Brock stated, resulting in a charge of third-degree possession of a controlled substance.

He also was charged with driving on a suspended license and booked into the detention center and release about 23 hours later on a $1,500 unsecured, third-party bond.

Assault charge

On Friday, police charged Rebecca Rhodus, 53, Sizemore Drive, with assaulting an officer after responding to a shoplifting report.

At approximately 3:15 p.m., police were summoned to Kohl’s to investigate a shoplifting incident. Store employees told police they had observed Rhodus concealing merchandise in a handbag, inside her pants and under her blouse. Also, she had put on a pair of new shoes and then attempted to leave the store without paying for the items, the police report stated.

Rhodus was detained by employees who recovered most, but not all, of the merchandise. Officers said they could observe that Rhodus was still concealing merchandise under her clothing and ordered her to surrender it. She refused and resisted officers as they took her into custody and attempted to recover the stolen merchandise. During the struggle, Rhodus intentionally kicked one of the officers twice in the lower leg before she was brought under control, the police report stated.

The stolen merchandise, valued at more than $715, was recovered and Rhodus was lodged in the detention center, according to the RPD report. She was release shortly after midnight Saturday on a $5,000 unsecured, third-party bond. She is facing charges of theft by unlawful taking (over $500), resisting arrest and third-degree assault (police officer).

Anyone with information regarding the above listed cases is asked to contact the Richmond Police Department at 859-623-1162.
