Man indicted in theft of car

RICHMOND — A Madison grand jury indicted a Richmond man Wednesday on a charge of stealing a car from a Mississippi car lot.

Edward O. Wardle, 49, was charged with receiving stolen property (less than $10,000) and second-degree escape.

The police caught up with Wardle on March 14 in the Kroger parking lot after receiving a report that a stolen vehicle was in the area, according to an RPD report.

The officer determined the Kentucky license plate on the car did not match the registered description of the vehicle.

The Saturn had been taken from the Mississippi car lot the day before, according to the report.

Wardle left the vehicle while the officer was checking it out, but he was detained a short time later, the RPD reported.
