RICHMOND, Va. — A Virginia man walked into Richmond Police Headquarters on Monday, held up the WTVR news app and said “Yo dog, that’s me.” Soon after he made that statement, he was arrested.

On Monday, Richmond police released photos of a man wanted in connection with a theft at a fire station.

Photos released by police showed a man on a bicycle. Officers said he rode up to a South Richmond fire station, walked in through an unlocked door and stole an electronic device on October 12.

“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.”

Edward Faggins is charged with grand larceny.
