On Apr. 19, St. Matthews police said Richie went to Kay Jewelers at Mall St. Matthews and asked an employee if he could look at a ring. When the employee allowed him to see the ring, Richie fled from the store with the ring.

The warrant said Richie attempted to commit the same crime at other jewelry stores. He would ask to see the most expensive ring they had, but left when employees would not let him handle it.
