RPD: Man makes false report of bomb at hospital

RICHMOND — Richmond police charged a Rice Court man with terroristic threatening Thursday after he made a false report about a bomb at Baptist Health in Richmond, according to Chief Larry Brock.

At 6:48 p.m., Ronald L. Mink, 61, reported to the Madison County 911 Center that there was a bomb on the hospital’s premises that was going to be detonated within the next three hours, Brock said in a news release.

Officers were sent to the hospital as well as Mink’s home to investigate.

“It was subsequently determined that the call made by Mink was a false bomb threat,” Brock said.

Second-degree terroristic threatening is a Class D felony, punishable by one to five years in prison.

Mink was arrested and taken to the Madison County Detention Center.

Woman charged with keeping laptop she did not own

A Irvine woman was charged Thursday with felony theft after police say she borrowed a laptop computer and transferred it to a third party.

Shona R. Harrison, 35, was charged with theft by unlawful taking (over $500) and theft by deception (over $500).

A resident in the 200 block McDaniel Avenue reported Thursday that he’d loaned a Samsung laptop computer to Harrison, and she refused to return it. The man had rented the computer, worth $1,365, from Rent-A-Center, according to the RPD release.

Officers determined that Harrison had transferred the computer to a third party Monday. The computer was recovered, according to the RPD.

Harrison already was incarcerated at the Madison County Detention Center on unrelated charges when she was served with the theft charges related to the laptop.
