Man burglarized warehouse, stole $10K in generators and wiring, says RPD

RICHMOND — Richmond police have arrested a local man in connection with the theft of $10,000 in generators and copper wiring from a warehouse.

James P. Richardson, 26, of Rose Lane, was charged Tuesday with third-degree burglary.

He also faces a charge of receiving stolen property (under $10,000) from an arrest warrant issued in a Kentucky State Police investigation.

The owner of a warehouse on North Estill Avenue reported Sunday that the building had been burglarized some time in the past two weeks.

Two diesel generators and a large amount of copper wiring had been taken, according to the RPD report.

Richmond police identified Richardson as a suspect, and he was arrested Tuesday at his home by deputies with the Madison County Sheriff’s Department.

Police make arrest in Kroger jewelry theft

Police have arrested a woman in connection with the theft of jewelry from Kroger last month.

Barbara A. Taylor, 49, of Dreyfus Road, was charged Tuesday with receiving stolen property (over $500).

An employee of Kroger told police March 9 that a woman had removed several pieces of jewelry from their boxes and concealed them on herself, the RPD report stated. She left the store without paying for the 11 pieces, which totaled $1,160.

A police investigation identified Taylor as a suspect, according to the report. She charged following a Tuesday interviewed at the police station.

Irvine business alleges former worker stole from company

A past employee of an Irvine piping company has been charged with several counts of theft and credit card fraud.

Steven K. Goble, 39, of Saratoga Circle was arrested Wednesday and charged with fraudulent use of a credit card (over $500), theft by deception (under $500), theft by deception (over $500) and theft by unlawful taking (over $500).

The owner of Burns Piping told police July 13 that two company credit cards issued to Goble had been used to make unauthorized purchases, according to the RPD report.

These purchases totaled $3,192.40.

After Goble’s employment with the company was terminated, his work van was retrieved and several company tools were missing, the owner also told police.

The estimated value of the tools is $585.

The investigation found that Goble purchased a $218 drill for his personal use on the piping company’s account at a local business, and that he claimed to have performed work he did not do, resulting in the company paying Goble $600 in wages, the RPD report states.

A judge issued a warrant in August for Goble’s arrest. Police found him Tuesday in the 2100 block of Lexington Road and arrested him.

The arresting officer reported finding a syringe on Goble, and he also was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

At the time of his arrest, officers served Goble with three outstanding warrants, two from Madison District Court charging him with flagrant nonsupport and a third from family court for failure to appear and failure to pay child support.
