Trio arrested in connection with shoplifting, home burglaries

RICHMOND — Three suspects in an Evansdale Avenue home burglary and the theft of $109 in soft drinks from Meijer earlier this month were arrested Monday by Richmond police.

An officer was sent Sept. 7 to Meijer to investigate a shoplifting complaint. Store employees reported that two men and a woman tried to leave the store without paying for 22 12-packs of soft drinks.

The employees tried to stop the man pushing the cart, but he ran away on foot, according to an RPD news release. The woman got in a nearby vehicle, and the second man jumped in the rear hatchback as they sped away, the RPD said.

A follow-up investigation identified April Stamper, 37, as the driver, and Ashley D. Lamb, 26, and Bradley S. Lamb, 24, as the men involved in the theft, according to the RPD.

On Monday, police were dispatched to a call about a burglary in progress in the 200 block of Evansdale Avenue. The officers reported encountering the Lambs outside the home and found several small items in their possession that came from inside the home, the release stated.

A side window had been forced open, the officers reported.

The men were interviewed at the police station and charged with with second-degree burglary as well as theft by unlawful taking (under $500) for the Meijer incident.

Bradley Lamb also was charged with possession of marijuana and illegal possession of a legend drug (16 baclofen pills) for items reportedly found on him when he was arrested.

Stamper was found later, and after an interview she was charged with theft by unlawful taking (under $500) and second-degree wanton endangerment in connection with the shoplifting incident.

Police say Stamper drove the Lambs to the Evansdale Avenue home. RPD investigators also allege she drove another party to the Spurlin Motor Home Park on Friday so another burglary could be committed.

Stamper additionally was charged with two counts of second-degree complicity to commit burglary.

Stamper and the Lambs remained Tuesday afternoon in the Madison County Detention Center, according to the jail’s online records.

John Deere mower reported stolen

A resident in the 200 block of West Blair Avenue reported Monday that a John Deere push mower was stolen from the side of his home some time during the previous five days. The mower is worth $481.

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