Woman charged in connection with theft from vending machine

RICHMOND — Lisa D. Tackett, 23, of West Rice Lane, was charged Wednesday with first-degree criminal mischief and theft by unlawful taking under $500 in connection with a vending machine theft that happened in July at the Red Roof Inn, according to a news release from the Richmond Police Department.

The release stated a representative of the Red Roof Inn reported Tackett and two white males entered the motel July 20 through a side door. The group then went to the third floor, where the two males pried open the machine while Tackett stood watch in the hallway. They then left in an older model 4-door passenger car with rust on it, taking with them about $150 in cash and several snacks, the release said. The damage to the machine was estimated at $1,500.

The release stated Tackett was identified as a suspect and a warrant was issued for her arrest Aug. 20. She was located by bike patrol officers and taken into custody without incident. She was taken to the Madison County Detention Center but released at an unknown time.

Man charged with theft by failure to make required disposition

Richard Salmonson, 38, of North First Street, was charged Aug. 24 with theft by failure to make required disposition of property over $500.

According to the news release, a representative of Lease Zone, located on Big Hill Avenue, reported that in February of 2012 Salmonson and a female had leased an iPad 2, iPod Touch, Playstation3 gaming system and a Sharp 32” LCD television, all valued at $2,183.50, but they misappropriated the items and left the state.

A warrant for Salmonson's arrest was issued in March of 2012 after a follow-up investigation revealed he and the female had disposed of the stolen property and moved to Ohio, the release stated.

Officers encountered Salmonson Aug. 23 on North First Street and took him into custody without incident. He was lodged in the detention center, and was released Wednesday on a $2,500 cash bond, according to the jail's online records.

Estimated loss: $1,576.
