Richmond police arrested Jeffery Miracle, E. Main Street, Richmond, after they were dispatched to the area of Oakland Ave. Wednesday morning.
An anonymous caller stated they believed there was a male and female sleeping in a yard behind Oakland Ave., along with five young children. Upon police arrival, the female told officers they had been kicked out of where they had been staying and had nowhere to go, according to a citation.
Officers received false information regarding 38-year-old Miracle's identity and when he "stepped out" from the shed he was in, he took off running. At the same time, the oldest juvenile took off running as well, in an attempt to make police follow them instead of Miracle, the citation stated.
Miracle ran through a backyard and through the YMCA's parking lot before being apprehended at Main and Maple streets. He also threw a glass pipe with residue into the fence line. Miracle told officers he ran because he has warrants, noting that he was on home incarceration and blamed a child for cutting his ankle bracelet off, the citation continued.
The female and remaining children were taken to RPD, where child protective services were contacted. The oldest juvenile had yet to be found at the time of Miracle's arrest, the citation noted.
Miracle was booked into the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Thursday afternoon. He is charged with second-degree criminal trespassing, second-degree fleeing or evading police (on foot), tampering with physical evidence, drug paraphernalia possession and theft of identity of another without consent.
