Teenager Charged In Richmond Burglary

Police arrest a teenage suspect they say broke into a Richmond business earlier this week.

Police say early Tuesday morning, they responded to a burglary at David's Towing on East Irvine Street. Police say someone broke in through a window and got away with cash.

Police say earlier that morning, an officer saw a teenager walking on West Irvine Street, about two blocks from David's Towing.

Police say the teen was dirty, sweating heavily and appeared nervous when questioned by the officer. As the officer was interviewing the teen, he turned and ran and was later found at his girlfriend's house.

The 17-year-old was initially charged with Fleeing or Evading Police Second Degree. He was then released to an adult.

Police later used evidence to connect the teenager to the crime scene at David's Towing and he was taken back into custody and charged with Burglary Third Degree and Possession of Burglary Tools.

Police say they recovered some of the stolen cash.

The teenager was lodged in the Fayette County Juvenile Detention Center.
