Richmond police have charged Brandon Alexander, 29, of Washington Avenue in Berea for burglary in connection with the theft from a residence on Maryland Drive in Richmond.

Police say on Saturday, a resident of Maryland Drive reported that his home had been unlawfully entered sometime during the previous day and a small safe/lockbox containing approximately $20,000.00 in cash was stolen.

The cash was part of a settlement that the victim had received.  Police say it appeared that entry had been gained through a rear window that was found to be unsecure.

During the course of the investigation, authorities say Alexander emerged as a suspect.  Shortly after the report of the burglary, Alexander was involved in a traffic accident on the Eastern Bypass at the Exit 87 bridge.  Police say the investigating officer discovered the stolen safe/lockbox in Alexander’s vehicle.

The safe/lockbox was empty at the time, but police say Alexander had $401.00 in cash on his person.  According to authorities, a subsequent search of Alexander’s apartment resulted in the recovery of $17,000.00 in cash hidden in a sofa.

Alexander was charged for second degree burglary and lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
