Richey, who is considered a “serial burglar”, and on federal probation for similar type crimes, was alleged to have stolen several pieces of jewelry, high-end watches, and other property from the aforementioned residences.

 

A collective investigation with detectives from the cities of Town and Country, Ladue, Creve Coeur, Des Peres to include assistance from the St. Louis County Police Dept. and Special Agents with the local FBI field office, resulted in the discovery of incriminating evidence leading to Richey’s eventual arrest.

 

Richey was taken into custody yesterday afternoon at his place of employment without incident and was transferred to the St. Louis County Justice Center where he was served with the warrant.
