Updated: Suspended Worthington Deputy Marshal Arrested on Warrant

Suspended Worthington Police Department Deputy Marshal Donald R. Richardson was taken into custody on Thursday evening after a warrant for his arrest was issued earlier that day.  He is accused of stealing money from an evidence locker at the police station.

Richardson has worked at the Worthington Police Department for twelve years, but was demoted from Marshal last year due to his alleged poor work performance and other unacceptable behaviors. Randy Raney was appointed as the new Marshal in October.

According to Indiana State Police Master Trooper Detective Stacy Brown, Raney told him that on November 30 he went into the department to rearrange the evidence room and discovered the keys to one locker were not in the usual place. He said that he found the keys in an ice cube tray on top of the refrigerator and that when he opened the locker he found a large plastic bag that was supposed to contain all the evidence for a case from 2012.

The bag was allegedly torn open and Raney, who was familiar with the case and the evidence resulting from it, noted that around $1,300 in cash was missing from it. According to a probable cause affidavit filed on March 6, Raney stated that he searched the evidence room several times but could not locate the missing money.

Raney told Brown that Richardson was the only other person who had a key to the evidence room as well as a key to the police department door. He also noted that Richardson had been going through a divorce and having financial troubles, and that the town clerk had mentioned that Richardson had tried to get advances on overtime he had not worked.

Raney said the case report was missing from the file cabinet it was supposed to be stored in, and that it was very suspicious as there was no reason for anyone to have removed a case that was no longer active. He also advised that when he checked the computer file holding Richardson’s files, he discovered that the file on that case had been modified on Nov. 17 of 2013. He stated that the only modification made to the case’s probable cause affidavit was the amount of money that was taken into evidence.

The original document showed the amount to be $1,289.10 and the modified document showed it to be $1,089.10.

On the date the document was changed, Raney and Richardson were the only officers working for the department, and Richardson was the only officer working that day.

Stacy interviewed Richardson on December 17, and noted that when he asked Richardson about the case the money was missing from he seemed agitated and angry. Stacy told him that the evidence bag had been torn open and the money was now missing, and Richardson allegedly became very angry and said that someone was trying to set him up.

Stacy reported that Richardson told him the money was not missing, but was instead stored in the refrigerator in the evidence room. He allegedly said that when he was hoping the department could seize the money and use it to purchase equipment in the late spring of 2013 he placed it in the refrigerator to eliminate the odor of marijuana on it.

Stacy stated that Richardson took him to the refrigerator and, without looking, grabbed the top envelope on the top shelf and handed it to him. He noted in the court document that he thought it was unlikely that Raney searched the refrigerator at least three times without finding the envelope, and that it was very unlikely the envelope would have been in the exact same spot after several months.

The envelope contained a smaller heat sealed bag with the proper case number and a dollar amount of $1,089 on it– $200 dollars short of the total listed in the original probable cause affidavit.

Richardson reportedly said the amount listed in the original probable cause affidavit was incorrect and that the bag contained the correct amount. Stacy said he also stated that the case file was not in the file cabinet because the printer was not working on the day he finished the report so he was unable to print it. Stacy noted that when he asked why he did not print a copy later, Richardson became upset and did not answer.

When Stacy showed Richardson a copy of the modified probable cause affidavit and told him that the change was made on Nov. 17 when he was the only one working, Richardson allegedly said that he did not take any of the money and did not make changes to the affidavit. Stacy said Richardson told him that he was being set up and they were trying to make it look like he stole the money.

According to Stacy, he asked who would have had access to the computer and the evidence room and Richardson said to look at Raney, the clerk-treasurer and deputy clerk, and members of the Worthington Town Board.

Stacy and ISP Trooper Richard Klun counted the money from the sealed bag that was in the refrigerator of the evidence room and found that it contained $1,089.10.

Richardson requested that Stacy check the computer in the evidence room to see what the dollar amount it listed for the case was, and on Dec. 20 Stacy discovered that the file on that computer had been modified on the same day as the file on the computer in the front office.

Again, the amount of money had been changed from $1,289.10 to $1,089.10.

On Dec. 20, Stacy interviewed Worthington Deputy Clerk Debbie Dyer, who told him that she did not have keys to the police department or evidence room and that she had no problems with Don and was not part of a set-up against him.

On Jan. 13 of this year, Stacy spoke with Worthington Clerk-Treasurer Gloria Klass, who said she did not have the keys, either, and that she considered Richardson to be a friend. She allegedly stated that she had recently received messages and emails from Richardson asking for $650 in Operation Pull-Over (OPO) overtime he claimed to have worked and that she had told him the policy on OPO advances had changed, at which point he asked if they could reconsider so he could give his son a good Christmas.

Klass told Stacy that she loaned Richardson $600 and he agreed that she could have his OPO check when it arrived. She added that she recently learned he never worked those hours or submitted the overtime claims, and that she was very surprised Richardson lied to her and took $600 of her money.

On Jan. 17, Stacy talked with Brad Deckard, who was employed as a deputy sheriff at the Greene County Sheriff’s Department when Richardson initially worked the case involving the missing money. Deckard said he remembered the case and that he verified the amount of money taken into evidence, but that he could only recall that it was over $1,000.

Deckard also allegedly told Stacy that Richardson had recently called him to tell him that he made a mistake on the dollar amount listed on the probable cause affidavit, and had requested that Deckard be a friend and cover for him. Deckard said that when he told Richardson he could not recall the dollar amount that was seized, Richardson asked him to lie to Stacy and tell him the dollar amount was $1,089.10.

Richardson is preliminarily charged with theft and official misconduct, both class D felonies. His bond will be set at $8,000 surety with ten percent cash allowed.
