RICHMOND, Va. -- A man walked into a Richmond Police precinct Monday, held up the WTVR news app and said "Yo dog, that's me" to the officers in the room. Soon after he made that statement, Edward Faggins, 28, of West Clay Street, was charged with grand larceny.

Earlier in the day, Richmond Police released photos of a man wanted in connection with a theft at a Richmond fire station. The pictures showed a man on a bicycle. Police said he rode up to a South Richmond fire station, walked in through an unlocked door and stole an electronic device on October 12, Richmond Police said.

Firehouse theft suspect

"At approximately 3:05 p.m., the man in the photos rode his bicycle up to Fire Station #17, located at 2211 Semmes Ave., just after firefighters had left on a call for service," a police spokesman said about the crime. "The suspect entered through an unlocked rear door and stole an electronic device belonging to a city employee. The suspect left through the same door, mounted the bicycle in the photo and rode away."

Firehouse theft suspect

Police described the man as a black male, 20-30 years of age, approximately six feet tall and weighing 220 pounds.

"He has a beard and dreadlocks and was wearing a t-shirt with the Lowe’s logo," police said.
