Another arrest made in rash of business burglaries

RICHMOND — Another local man has been arrested in connection with a “smash-and-grab” business burglary in April.

William A. Simmons, 28, of Frankie Drive, was charged Tuesday with two counts of second-degree possession of a forged instrument.

Richmond officers responded the morning of April 28 to a report of a broken-out glass front door at Home Tech Solutions, 210 Geri Lane.

They found no intruders in the building, but a business representative told police several items were missing. Stolen were: a Sony 50-inch television, an unknown brand television, an Acer 23-inch LCD monitor and three Dish Network receivers. Several bank checks also were missing.

Investigators determined that Simmons had passed two of the stolen and forged checks at Kroger shortly after the Home Tech Solutions break-in, according to the RPD report. The checks totaled $175.

A warrant was issued for Simmons’ arrest Monday, and he was charged with possession of forged instruments the next day after he was transported to the Madison County Detention Center from Louisville. Online jail records indicate he has a $15,000 cash bond.

Simmons was being held in Louisville on a Madison County burglary warrant.
