Driver charged with hit-and-run, drugs charges after allegedly crashing into pole on Janneys Lane

A 35-year-old Richmond man faces serious charges after allegedly crashing a car into a pole in the 1000 block of Janneys Lane.

The incident occurred at around 10:45 p.m. on April 2 (Saturday), and the driver was found hiding from police two blocks away. The man told police that he was hiding because he was scared, according to a search warrant affidavit.

After denying that he took any alcohol or drugs, the man was searched and police seized several baggies with small, crystal shaped rocks, several syringes and plastic or glass pipes, according to a search warrant affidavit. The man was charged with hit and run, driving without a license, possession of Schedule I/II drugs, possession of Schedule III drugs and driving while intoxicated.

The suspect was released on April 4 on $7,000 unsecured bond and goes to court on April 18.
