RICHMOND — Working in collaboration with federal agents, Richmond police officers arrested Bradley D. Little, 21, of Merrick Drive, Friday in connection with trafficking in anabolic steroids, according to release from the Richmond Police Department.

Officers reported recovering 205 vials of anabolic steroids from Little’s residence. They also uncovered marijuana, suspected psilocybin mushrooms and more than $2,400 in cash, according to the release.

Little was charged with second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.

He was released the next day on a $15,000 cash bond, according to jail records.



Arrest made in theft of many large home furnishings

In January, a resident in the 1100 block of Richmond Green Drive reported a 60-inch flat screen television, a three-piece entertainment center, a gray couch and love seat, a full-size bed, a washer and dryer and two pair of shoes had been stolen from his apartment. The estimated loss was $2,575.

An RPD investigation determined that Tonetta Hoevenaar, 32, of Richmond Green Drive, was in possession of the stolen property shortly after the theft and had transferred it to other parties, according to an RPD news releaes.

All of the stolen items were recovered and a warrant was issued for Hoevenaar’s arrest, charging her for two counts of receiving stolen property (over $500).

On Saturday, police responded to the same residence in the 1100 block of Richmond Green to investigate a domestic disturbance, and Hoevenaar was one of the parties involved in the altercation, according to the RPD..

She was arrested and remained jailed Monday evening on bonds totaling $3,000.



Burglary report leads to drug arrest

Around 7 p.m. Friday, RPD officers were dispatched to the 100 block of Meadowlark Drive to investigate the report of a burglary in progress.

Officers discovered the suspected burglar was the home’s resident and was attempting to gain entry, according to an RPD news release.

However, police discovered a warrant existed for Paul D. Cox, 40, charging him with nonpayment of fines in a traffic-offense case.

Cox was taken into custody, and a search of his person revealed three oxycodone pills, two alprazolam pills, a package of Suboxone strips and a straw with suspected drug residue, the release stated. 

He was then charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, two counts of third-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Cox remained jailed Monday evening under a $2.500 cash bond.
