Richmond police arrested James Winkler, 39, East Kentucky Avenue, Richmond, for theft by unlawful taking ($10,000 or more, but less than $1,000,000), two counts of leaving the scene of an accident (failure to render aid or assistance) and second-degree criminal mischief after officers were called to East Kentucky Avenue, where it was reported he was driving a truck and hauling a trailer that struck nearby vehicles Tuesday morning.
When officers arrived, they found the truck and trailer unoccupied, but learned that it belonged to Winkler, according to a citation. A witness then waved down officers and said they saw the vehicle with the trailer attached hauling a lawn mower.
The witness said they heard a loud thud up the street and said they believed a vehicle was struck by the trailer, the citation states. Officers noticed fresh horizontal scratch marks on the rear of the vehicle, and the vehicle's paint was seen on the trailer.
The citation states Winkler went to his residence where officers found Winkler in a bedroom. They asked him to step outside and questioned him.
Winkler admitted to driving the vehicle and possibly striking a nearby pole, the citation states. He said he bought the trailer and mower for about $1,500 from a friend, but police knew that $1,500 isn't close to the value of the trailer and the mower, according to the citation.
Officers spoke with the person who opened the door of the home, who said there was no way Winkler would have been able to afford the trailer and mower, the citation states.
Officers then questioned Winkler about how he could have afforded the trailer and mower, and Winkler said he transported and sold methamphetamine for another person, the citation states. Through investigation, though, officers found the owner of the trailer and mower, who confirmed the items were stolen. The owner said the items had a value of $15,000.
Police gained surveillance video from a business near where the trailer and mower were stolen from and saw Winkler's vehicle hauling the items away from the area. Winkler admitted he knew the items were stolen and said he planned to resell them for money, according to the citation.
Officers were flagged down by another person who also claimed their vehicle was struck by the trailer, as well, the citation states.
Winkler was taken to the MCDC, where he remained Tuesday afternoon, according to online jail records.
