5 arrested for meth-making

Richmond police arrested five people Tuesday on methamphetamine manufacturing charges after investigating a report of a suspicious vehicle on Sizemore Drive.

Officers responded to a report just before midnight Monday of a suspicious vehicle parked in the 700 block of Sizemore Drive and found three people, all Berea residents, said Sgt. Willard Reardon, Richmond Police Department spokesman.

After a search of the passenger compartment and the trunk of the car uncovered Xanax pills, marijuana, methamphetamine precursors and paraphernalia, police arrested: Brittani J. Gregory, 20, of Lambert Road; Alonzo Edward Denny, 22, of Flat Gap Road; and Nicholas W. Gadd, 20, also of Flat Gap Road.

The three each were charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, third-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, Reardon said.

The arrests led Richmond narcotics detectives to execute a search warrant at an apartment in the 300 block of Turpin Drive, Reardon said, where they discovered methamphetamine precursors and a small quantity of the drug.

Police arrested the apartment resident, 30-year-old Heather Darlene Robinson, as well as Brandi Dawn Carroll, 32, of Jason Drive, who was present at the apartment. Both were charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.

All five people were lodged in the Madison County Detention Center, Reardon said.

Other crimes

• The landlord of an apartment in the 400 block of Jason Drive reported Tuesday that a combination washer-dryer unit was removed from the apartment by a tenant who was moving out, Reardon said.

The unit was valued at $900.

• A wallet was reported stolen Monday afternoon from an unlocked vehicle at Irvine-McDowell Park. Reardon said the victim told police the black and tan wallet contained personal checks, credit cards and identification.
