Randall William Collins, of the 1500 block of N. 20th Street, was last spotted leaving the Canal Club late Saturday night on April 5. Collins’ family believes that after leaving the Canal Club, he either got into a car with two black males or that he may have walked towards Church Hill. Police said Collins suffers from seizures, which require medication to control. Collins is described as a black male, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing around 150 pounds. He has tattoos on both hands and one on his right arm that reads, “Randall.” If you have information that could help investigators, call  Major Crimes Detective William Brereton at 804-646-5034 or Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.

      Yes many mugshots as Mr. Collins has been arrested/cited 5 times in Richmond with 3 quilty and 2 Nolle Prosequi. Arrested/cited 22 times in Henrico with 14 quilty. They need to find him because he hasn’t paid 1 fine for any of the quilty findings dating back to 2008.

        To Clayton Bigsby you are such an ignorant and stupid individual. I know this man personally he is like family to me. You need to watch what you say out your mouth. If is was your family member, mom, dad, sister or brother. You wouldn’t want anybody to comment and say negative things about you. So watch what you say.Its ignorant people like you that make other people look bad.

        Reeltime, Since you seem to be getting so much targeted attention for answering my question. Would you kindly post some links? It seems fair that if people are so defensive, there should be a reason. Or maybe there could be a reason why something this simple would be handled by the RPD MAJOR CRIMES DIVISION.

        Is there something else going on here?

    “Earlier this month”? Why do the police wait so long before alerting the public someone is missing?

  • athynz

    For those who are trying to bust on the man because of the alleged mugshot I have 2 questions: 1) How recent was this shot and 2) Did he serve his time? Not that either question makes any real difference in the hope that he is found but I’m hoping the answers will stop this whole “guilty because he has a mug shot” thing going on. Clayton I’m looking at you buddy.

    3 how do you know if he truly was guilty, people have been found guilty and even put to death over something the have not done

  • Lorri

    What is wrong with you people. The fact that he is missing and his criminal are two totally different things. Are you saying that people with a past should not be able to go missing. Get put of here
    People are always trying to tarnish people.
    For every finger that you are pointing there are two pointing back at you
    @REELTIME AND CLAYTON

      Lorri, someone asked a question and I provided an answer based on facts. That’s what I deal in FACTS. And when I point my finger I have 3 pointed back @ me. I was born with 5.

        Lets look up your criminal record. We can’t find it cause your hiding your identity like the punk you are

  • dmch

    First off to all you ignorant ppl just because someone has a criminal record does not mean that they deserve to be mistreated you all act like everyone has to or can b perfect when anybody living in the real world knows being perfect is impossible Randall Collins is my brother and made many mistakes in his life but to b judged by people who never knew him is very crazy. My family deserves to know where and what happened to him as any family would. What if it was one of ya’ll children brother sister or cousin how would you judge them just because they are young and made mistakes in their life would you say the same i really don’t think so so please grow up and lets all b adults

  • Cheryl

    I pray Randall is returned back home with his loving famil very soon! No family deserves to have to go through no knowing where a family member is!!!! God Bless💜

    I work RITE n that area… They rob people down the, beat people up 4 no reason and this is not the first person I’ve heard of n the years I’ve been working down there 2 take a missing… This world is A MESS… My WHOLE HEART goes out 2 his FAMILY… and all the GOTCHA PAPER and Mug shot chasers find another hobby… #THEEXCEPTINGAPPLICATIONFORMARS #YOUTAKEAMISSING

  • Pumkin

    I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY THAT I PRAY FOR HIS SAFE RETURN HOME…. AND TO TRY AND UNDERSTAND WHAT RELEVANCE DOES THE FACT THAT HE HAS A RECORD HAVE TO DO WITH IT? 90% OF RICHMOND HAS A RECORD FROM JAY WALKING- MURDER…. A MAN COULD BE DEAD, INJURED, OR ILL…. IF IT WAS ONE OF US POSTING ON HERE, OR EVEN READING THIS, WE WOULD WANT SOMEONE TO LOOK FOR US…. I WORK IN A NIGHT CLUB IN SHOCKOE BOTTOM N ITS REALLY NOT SAFE DOWN THERE… THATS FOR WHITE, BLACK, INDIAN, HISPANIC, KOREAN, JAPANESE, ETC…. THE LIST GOES ON…. PLEASE PEOPLE DONT BE PETTY N CHILDISH…… I DONT KNOW YOU CLAYTON OR REELTIME BUT SOMETIMES A PERSONS PAST HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THERE FUTURE……

    The most important thing is this young man is found. Fines, charges,etc is irrelevant when someone is missing. This young man has friends & family that need answers. So what if that is a mugshot? And 1 less criminal on the streets. Omg!!!! That’s cold hearted. Smh… there’s some really selfish & ignorant people in this world. Praying for his safe return.
