A man who allegedly crashed into the Merrick Shell station in May showed up at the Richmond police station Monday to retrieve his impounded vehicle, according to officers.
Police believe two passengers were inside the vehicle when it drove through the front of the building late last month. They said the driver, 57-year-old Harold Thomas, was eventually able to get the vehicle free from the inside of the store before fleeing the scene.
A few days later, police tracked down Thomas' vehicle and impounded it.
On Monday, officers said Thomas arrived to pick up his vehicle.
Instead of returning it, police charged him with criminal mischief, wanton endangerment and tampering with physical evidence.
He was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
