RPD: Man hid drugs in another’s home

Police charged 35-year-old Daniel B. Middleton, Lexington, for several drug offenses May 5 after discovering a tin hidden in another’s residence, according to an RPD report.

During the evening May 3, police responded to a residence in the 700 block of Sizemore Drive to investigate a domestic dispute. 

When they arrived, officers learned that Middleton was one of the parties involved in the dispute.  They ultimately found Middleton hiding inside a nearby apartment and took him into custody on the strength of an outstanding arrest warrant for nonpayment of fines, the police report stated. He was taken to the Madison County Detention Center but released later that day.

Officers later discovered Middleton had hidden a metal container inside the residence in which he was found without the owner’s knowledge, according to the RPD.

The tin was recovered and found to contain a clonazepam pill, half of a methadone pill, two packets of heroin, seven hypodermic needles and various other items of drug use paraphernalia, the RPD reported.

The next evening, Middleton was found at an apartment on Sizemore Drive, detained and taken to the police department for an interview. 

Following the interview, Middleton was charged with two counts of first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and tampering with physical evidence.

He was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.

At 7:18 a.m., an officer was dispatched to a residence in the 100 block of Kensington Place to investigate a theft report. 

The officer met with the victim who reported that at 1:30 a.m., she heard loud banging on the front door that she feared would awaken three sleeping children so she opened the door. Her former boyfriend, Withers, entered the residence accompanied by his sister, the woman told police.

The victim reported that Withers began verbally berating her, grabbing her face and threatening to strike her. Withers then forcibly took the victim’s cellular telephone and he left the residence with his sister, the RPD report stated.

The woman also said Withers slashed the tires on the her vehicle before he left. 

A short time later, he returned and entered the residence uninvited, according to the RPD. Withers is accused of again verbally berating the victim and grabbing her by the neck and arms. 

Withers then produced a pocket knife and threatened the victim before leaving the residence again, after which the victim said she locked the doors. Withers returned again but could not gain entry and eventually left the scene, according to the RPD report.

Officers found Withers at his residence and recovered the victim’s phone along with the aforementioned pocket knife, the report stated. 

He was taken to the police station, where he was interviewed and then charged with second-degree robbery, second-degree burglary, first-degree wanton endangerment and third-degree criminal mischief.

He was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center. 

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call the Richmond Police Department at 623-1162.
