Douglas Parks, 35, Race Street, Richmond, was arrested Tuesday after Richmond police were called to Walmart on Eastern Bypass. 

An employee with Walmart told police a man, later identified as Parks, shoplifted headphones and batteries and was on foot headed towards Boggs Lane. 

The officer was able to locate Parks on Boggs Lane, and ordered him to stop.

According to the police citation, Parks then took off running and entered a residence on Boggs Lane. Police attempted to contact and order Parks to stop, but he ran through the residence and jumped several fences behind the residence going towards Rice Court. 

Witnesses at Rice Court reported Parks went towards the end of Hanover Avenue and officers searched the area which connects to rear businesses inside the Carriage Gate Shopping Center on Eastern Bypass. 

Parks was located once again at the McDonalds by Kroger Shopping Center where he was detained by officers with RPD. 

Parks waived his Miranda Rights and denied going through the residence on Boggs Lane and told officers he was returning batteries to Walmart. He was placed under arrested and searched. The headphones were located on his person.

Officers also found a cigarette pack which contained a silver spoon with residue. A black silicone container was also located in Park's front, right pocket. 

When asked what it contained, Parks said it was a little bit of "ice," also known as methamphetamine. He was taken to Walmart to return the stolen headphones. The batteries could not be located. Then, Parks was taken to the residence on Boggs Lane. The resident advised he knew Parks, and that he was always welcome at the home, but that the resident did not know Parks had run through the home.
