Richmond man indicted in theft of 11 trailers

RICHMOND — A Richmond man accused of stealing trailers in three counties has been indicted by a Madison grand jury on 11 counts of theft by unlawful taking.

Michael T. Workman, 23, faces a maximum of 20 years in prison if he is convicted of the charges. He also was indicted as a second-degree persistent felony offender.

From May 25 to July 22, Workman took trailers from a variety of Madison County properties, including the Lexington Road Church of God, the indictment alleges.

One of the thefts occurred from a property in Battlefield Estates, and a detective with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office was able to use security camera footage to track down the suspect, according to a MSO news release.

After he was arrested, Workman was “very cooperative” with police and helped them identify other trailer thefts in Madison, Fayette and Scott counties, according to the MSO.

The RPD reported at the time of Workman’s arrest that some of the trailers had been recovered.

Others indicted Wednesday:

• Jessica Leeann Estes, second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (hydrocodone)

• Andre Deshaun Williams, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (heroin)

• John W. Medley, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (oxycontin), second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (buprenorphine), second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (hydrocodone), second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (suboxone), tampering with physical evidence, possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana, operating on a suspended driver’s license and first-degree persistent felony offender

• Curtis W. Cheeks, 33, first-degree possession of a controlled substance (oxycodone)

• Billy K. Nolen, 50, and Sharon Nolen, 39, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (oxycodone), third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (clonazepam) and possession of drug paraphernalia. Sharon G. Nolen was additionally indicted on a charge of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (oxycodone)

• Jason C. Fleming, first-degree possession of a controlled substance (heroin)

• James Drake Fitzpatrick, 18, first-degree criminal mischief and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle

• James Drake Fitzpatrick, 18, seven counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, fleeing or evading police, three counts of unlawful imprisonment, receiving stolen property (under $10,000), first-degree criminal mischief and fraudulent use of a credit card

• James Drake Fitzpatrick, 18, receiving stolen property (more than $10,000)

• Darrelle L. Walton, 22, two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (oxycodone and heroin), two counts of third-degree assault (Richmond police officers) and giving a peace officer a false name.

An indictment is a formal statement of charges and does not imply guilt, only that grand jurors believe the state has enough evidence to prosecute.
