Turpin Drive resident charged with making meth

Register staff report

RICHMOND — Richmond police arrested a Turpin Drive man Friday night on a charge of manufacturing meth.

Bryan K. Beagle, 27, was charged last week after police investigated a complaint about drug activity at his home in the 400 block of Turpin Drive.

Officers found several items in his bedroom commonly associated with making meth, including tubing, glass jars with red-tinted liquid inside, Coleman fuel, a funnel, iodine, lighter fluid, coffee filters and lithium batteries, according to an RPD news release.

Beagle was taken to the Madison County Detention Center, and he bonded out the next day.

Woman charged with burglary at Kroger

A woman who was banned from Kroger in 2004 was charged with felony burglary after police say she attempted to leave the store on Christmas Eve with $29 in merchandise.

Ondria L. Hickey, 35, of Bolton Avenue, was charged with third-degree burglary in the shoplifting incident, according to the RPD. She was taken to the Madison County Detention Center and bonded out the next day.

A store employee detained Hickey after she attempted to leave the store with the items, the RPD release stated. Police officers determined that she had previously been been banned from Kroger in 2004 following another shoplifting offense, which is why she was charged with felony burglary.
