Kristin White, 21, of Providence Road, was charged with third-degree burglary Sunday after after an officer was called to Walmart at about 6:25 p.m. on a shoplifting complaint.
Walmart employees told the officer they witnessed White concealing merchandise in her purse. She had been issued a trespass warning and banned from Walmart in January, the police report stated.
When she attempted to leave the store without paying, she was detained by the officer, who also found suboxone, a syringe and a spoon in her possession. Because she entered the store after being banned, she was charged with burglary rather than shoplifting. She was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
White was lodged in the detention center, but was released on bond later the same day.
Man charged with parole violation after fleeing police
Phillip Cain, 35, of Smith Village, was charged with parole violation Sunday after he fled on foot from a traffic stop, according to a police report.
At about 9:10 p.m. an officer stopped a vehicle being driven by Cain on Keri Ann Drive for having a cancelled registration plate. After making contact with Cain, the officer returned to his vehicle to conduct follow-up checks on his registration. As he was doing so, Cain left his vehicle and fled on foot. The officer pursued him on foot and apprehended him, the report stated.
The officer then found a marijuana cigarette on Cain's person, it added.
The officer also discovered a warrant had been issued for Cain’s arrest on parole-violation charge.
Cain was convicted of first-degree robbery and burglary in 2001 and was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment. He was convicted in 2012 of two counts of theft of an automobile and sentenced to an additional three years. Later in 2012 he was paroled.
Cain was taken to the detention center Sunday and charged with parole violation, second-degree fleeing or evading police, possession of marijuana and operating a motor vehicle without registration, insurance or a license. He remained jailed Tuesday evening, according to the detention center’s website.
Anyone with information regarding the above listed cases is asked to contact the Richmond Police Department at 623-1162.
