Richards, 25, was arrested May 27 and served a week in the Lincoln County jail on theft charges. Police said he stole a laptop and jewelry from a family member.

He was initially charged with a felony, but the county attorney’s office reduced the charge to a misdemeanor and he was sentenced to seven days and released Thursday.

A 4:35 a.m. Sunday morning, a police officer on a security patrol near the River’s Edge golf course saw Richards emerge from behind a building on the course, riding a bicycle. Police not only found that the bike had been stolen, but a search of the immediate area turned up a bag of equipment that contained a hammer, several screwdrivers and a flashlight — tools that a burglar would use, according to the police report.  

Richards was charged for possession of stolen property as well as burglary tools. 

Compounding the charges, he was also found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia that field tested positive for methamphetamine. 

He went back to jail. His bond is set at $10,000.
