RICHMOND — The search of a Dixie Plaza resident ended in police finding “over 200 digital images depicting child pornography,” said Richmond Police Chief Larry Brock.

Dana Feltner, 38, was arrested Tuesday for two counts of possession of a matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.

In November 2012, Richmond police detectives initiated an investigation into Feltner’s activities after receiving information indicating that he was in possession of child pornography, according to Brock. Detectives executed a search warrant at Feltner’s residence and recovered hundreds of digital images of child porn, Brock said.

A warrant for Feltner’s arrest was issued Tuesday and he was taken into custody on Celia Drive without incident. He remains in the Madison County Detention Center under a $10,000 cash bond.    

                        

Another arrest made in undercover drug roundup

Richmond police found yet another person during its ongoing, covert operation to catch those illegally selling narcotics.

Jimmy Bertotto, 29, of Keri Ann Court, Richmond, was arrested Tuesday and was charged with three counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

According to police, Bertotto sold 11-and-a-half oxycodone (Percocet) tablets to an undercover police officer.

The man surrendered at the Richmond Police Station just before 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Several people were arrested earlier in January as a part of the same covert operation. They include:


• Reanell C. Caldwell, 36, East Irvine Street, two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance

• Mackie R. Rhodus, 42, Smith Village, three counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance

• Greg Farmer, 31, Four Mile Road, two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and one count of second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance

• Kimberly D. Hellard, 37, Francis Street, two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance

• Shamika M. Flood, 33, Herndon Street, Berea, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance

• Blake J. Chadwell, 27, Woods Trail, four counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance

• Anthony S. Harris, 29, Mallory Spring, Berea, two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance

In other arrests:

• Brandy N. Mullins, 27, with no permanent address, was arrested Tuesday in connection with the theft of an iPad.

An officer was dispatched at approximately 4:30 p.m. to a residence in the 100 block of Martin Drive to investigate a reported theft.  

“The officer was informed by the resident that Mullins came to her residence to retrieve some clothing that Mullins had stored at the home,” Brock said. “While gathering her clothing, Mullins was observed taking an iPad that belonged to the resident.”

When the resident confronted Mullins, Mullins fled from the scene in a vehicle, taking the iPad with her, he said.

Officers later located Mullins in the 300 block of Fourth Street and took her into custody without incident. The iPad was not recovered.

Mullins was charged with theft by unlawful taking more than $500 and taken to the Madison County Detention Center.

• Bruce Kelley, 52, of Kristin Drive, was arrested Tuesday and charged with second-degree assault. He now is lodged in the detention center.

Officers were dispatched just after 2 a.m. to a residence in the 300 block of Kristin Drive to investigate a domestic assault complaint. Upon arrival, officers were met by a relative of Kelley’s who was suffering from a large laceration to the head.

“It later was determined that Kelley and the victim had been involved in a dispute that resulted in Kelley striking the victim in the head with a metal jack handle. The victim was treated for his 10-stitch injury at Baptist Health Richmond and released from the hospital.

• Oscar W. King, 66, of Bradbury Pointe Drive, was arrested Saturday and charged with receiving stolen property over $500.

A resident in the 100 block of S. Killarney Lane reported Tuesday, Jan. 15, that her apartment had been broken into during the afternoon and a Hewlett Packard laptop computer was stolen. Entry was gained by forcing open a bedroom window, according to police. The stolen computer was valued at $548.

“The investigating officer received information indicating that King was in possession of the stolen computer,” Brock said.  

On the same day, the officer made contact with King at his residence. After examining the computer, police determined that it was in fact the stolen computer in question.
