Feds, RPD arrest man charged with steroid trafficking



Reckless driving leads to stolen street sign

Also on Friday, police responded to a report of reckless driving in the area of Merrick Drive, and found Sean M. Robinson, 24, of Richmond Green Drive, slumped over the steering wheel of an idling pickup truck sitting off Richmond Green Drive, an RPD release stated.

That’s when police discovered a street sign from the intersection of Richmond Green and Merrick drives in the bed of Robinson’s truck, according to the report. They believe he had collided with the street sign and placed it in his truck.

Robinson was taken into custody after he was awakened, and the officer determined he was intoxicated, the release stated.

He was charged with driving under the influence, receiving stolen property under $500, failure to report a traffic accident and no vehicle insurance.

Robinson was released from jail the next day in on a $1,000 unsecured third-party bond.

RPD: Irvine driver strikes vehicle, injures passenger

A vehicle driven Feb. 18 by Zachary C. Goosey, 20, of Irvine, was traveling eastbound on the Eastern Bypass when it crossed the median and struck a westbound vehicle stopped at the traffic light, according to an RPD news release.

One of the four passengers in the stopped vehicle suffered a broken arm.

Officers at the scene determined Goosey was intoxicated and arrested him, the report stated.

Goosey was charged with driving under the influence and four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment. He remained in the Madison County Detention Center on Monday evening under a $10,000 cash bond.

Early-morning burglary call results in arrest

Around 7 a.m. Saturday, officers responded to a burglary in progress reported in the 100 block of South Kilarney Lane.

The resident told police Junuis D. Randle, Jr., 22, of Fairview Street, had broken out the front bedroom window, entered her apartment and proceeded to destroy several items of property.

A visitor to the apartment attempted to subdue Randle until the officers arrived but “was only partially successful as Randle continued to destroy items in the home,” the RPD news release stated.

Officers observed several items, both inside and outside of the apartment, that had been damaged, including a television, a night stand and a wooden patio set. The resident was an acquaintance of Randle’s.

He was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief and alcohol intoxication.

Randle remained in jail Monday evening under a $5,000 cash bond.
