Check-cashing business robbed

RICHMOND —

Richmond Police responded Monday to reports of a robbery at a Richmond Business.

According to the RPD report, officers called to Check for Cash, 420 Eastern Bypass, learned from the clerk that a man had entered the business and attempted to walk behind the counter. When the clerk confronted the man, he demanded money.

The clerk told officers that the man kept his hands in his pockets in a manner that led the clerk to believe he had a weapon. The clerk surrendered an undisclosed amount of cash and the man fled form the building.

Officers deployed a K-9 unit ans searched the area, but they were unable to locate the suspect.

According to the report, the man is described as white, between five feet eight inches and five feet ten inches and between 30 and 40 years old. He is also described as wearing a light brown jacket with a light-colored hooded sweatshirt underneath and blue jeans.

This is the eight robbery of a business, and the second of a check cashing service, to occur in or around Richmond since Nov. 30.

Theft from vehicle

An employee of Bluegrass Plating on Industry Road reported Monday that a Vizio 40-inch television worth $700 had been stolen from his vehicle while it was parked at the business between 6 and 8:40 a.m. Entry to the vehicle was gained by manipulating the door lock.

Anyone with information regarding the above listed cases is asked to contact the Richmond Police Department at 623-1162.
