Man charged with shooting on Race Street back in jail

RICHMOND — A man accused of first-degree assault in a Richmond shooting last fall is facing new charges connected with a 2009 burglary.

Tony Ray Gay, 21, of Race Street, was charged Monday with second-degree burglary in connection with a 2009 case, according to a news release from the Richmond Police Department.

In October 2009, a resident of the 300 block of Timothy Way reported a break-in, and forensic evidence collected at the scene connected Gay to the crime, according to the release.

Gay was arrested a few days after a man was shot Nov. 19 at the corner of Race and Spring streets. Gay had just been released from jail on bond when the shooting occurred, according to jail records.

The victim suffered a bullet wound to his abdomen and was expected to recover after being hospitalized, according to the Richmond police.

Gay was charged with first-degree assault, four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

Gay was released from jail Jan. 2 after a judge reduced his bond from $50,000 to $10,000 cash or property with the conditions he has no further violations of the law and no contact with the victim, according to court documents.  

However, jail records show police arrested Gay again Feb. 7 on charges of operating on a suspended license and failure to wear a seat belt. He was served with the second-degree burglary charges Monday while in the detention center.

Gay remained jailed Tuesday under bonds totaling $10,250.

Shoplifting incident leads to numerous charges

On Sunday, officers were dispatched to Walmart to investigate a shoplifting report.

Leann N. Deboard, 33, and Kelly A. Brown, 31, both of Berea, were about to exit the store when officers confronted them at the door.

Deboard pushed her shopping cart into one of the officers and resisted arrest, according to the RPD release.

Both women were taken into custody and were found to be in possession of $524 in stolen merchandise, police said.

Officers said they discovered a syringe in Deboard’s purse and also found her to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana, two Valium pills, a partial Xanax pill and a partial Suboxone pill.

A syringe also was found in a purse owned by Brown, who had been previously banned from Walmart property, the news release stated.

Deboard was charged with second-degree robbery, second-degree disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, menacing, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, second-degree possession of a controlled substance and two counts of third-degree possession of a controlled substance.

Brown was charge with theft by unlawful taking (over $500), second-degree criminal trespassing and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both women were lodged at the detention center in lieu of a $7,500 bond for Deboard and $1,000 bond for Brown.

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