Reckless driving leads to stolen street sign
Also on Friday, police responded to a report of reckless driving in the area of Merrick Drive, and found Sean M. Robinson, 24, of Richmond Green Drive, slumped over the steering wheel of an idling pickup truck sitting off Richmond Green Drive, an RPD release stated.
That’s when police discovered a street sign from the intersection of Richmond Green and Merrick drives in the bed of Robinson’s truck, according to the report. They believe he had collided with the street sign and placed it in his truck.
Robinson was taken into custody after he was awakened, and the officer determined he was intoxicated, the release stated.
He was charged with driving under the influence, receiving stolen property under $500, failure to report a traffic accident and no vehicle insurance.
Robinson was released from jail the next day in on a $1,000 unsecured third-party bond.
