RPD makes speedy arrests in Hastings parking lot robbery

RICHMOND — A quick-thinking robbery victim was able to catch the perpetrator’s license plate as the man sped away with a stolen iPad and cash Saturday morning outside Hastings.

Nicholas Masden, 18, Magnolia Drive, was charged with first-degree robbery, and Shawn N. Riddell, 19, Keri Ann Court, was charged with complicity to first-degree robbery in connection with the incident.

The victim told police he was sitting in his parked vehicle around 7:30 a.m. outside the Richmond Centre store when another car pulled up nearby.

A man, later identified as Masden, got out of the passenger side of the vehicle and asked the victim for directions, according to the RPD news release. While the victim was providing the directions, Masden put his hand in his jacket pocket and implied he had a gun, the release stated.

Masden demanded the victim’s iPad and all his cash, which was $11, according to the release. Masden then got back in the vehicle and left, the release stated.

The victim was able to give police the vehicle’s license plate number, and police discovered it was registered to Riddell. Officers found the empty vehicle outside Riddell’s Keri Ann Court residence.

A short time later, Masden and Riddell arrived at Riddell’s home in another vehicle, according to the RPD.

Police detained both men and found the stolen iPad in Masden’s home, the release reported.

Man allegedly causes nearly $2,000 in damage to car

A Big Hill Avenue man has been arrested in connection with an October incident in which a rock was thrown at a car’s driver during an argument.

Stormy D. Isaacs, 21, was charged Saturday with first-degree criminal mischief and second-degree wanton endangerment.

A woman reported Oct. 26 that during the late evening hours of Oct. 24, she was parked in the Shopper’s Village parking lot with two friends when Isaacs approached them, an RPD news release stated. Isaacs starting arguing with the woman and attempted to enter the vehicle but the woman locked him out, according to the release.

The woman said Isaacs kicked the passenger-side door twice, then picked up a large rock and threw it toward the woman’s open car window, the release stated.

The rock missed the victim but hit the driver’s side door, causing damage. Isaacs is alleged to have caused $1,848 in damage to the vehicle, the RPD reported.

A warrant was issued Friday for Isaac’s arrest, and he was found at his residence the next day.
