Times-Tribune / Staff Report

Thanks to the media and public response, the London City Police arrested and charged three Williamsburg men in the theft that occurred at Wal-Mart Super Center on Sunday. Officials received an overwhelming response from the public, with more than 20 calls stating the identity of the suspects.

The three men allegedly involved in the theft were arrested Wednesday afternoon.

London City Police Officer Nick Jones arrested Billy E. Ramey Jr., 37, of Williamsburg, and charged him with theft by unlawful taking over $300 and third-degree criminal mischief.

Also arrested was Billy L. Ramey, 60, of Williamsburg, charged with theft by unlawful taking over $300.

A third suspect, David Scott Fields, 37, of Williamsburg, was arrested and charged with theft by unlawful taking over $300.

Police recovered a Dell computer, one of two Black and Decker tools kits and one of two Bushnell weather forecasters that had allegedly been stolen.

According to police, two men entered the London Wal-Mart Sunday evening and got a pair of bolt cutters from a shelf. They then pushed two carts to the electronics department and loaded a Dell computer in each. Police say the men also took two Black and Decker tool sets.

The men then allegedly pushed the carts to the Lawn and Garden department, where police said they used the bolt cutters to cut the lock on the fence and open the sliding gate, allowing them to leave the store with the items.

The investigation also revealed that Billy Ramey, Jr. has allegedly committed the same type offense in Madison and Pulaski counties.

Assisting in the arrests and investigation was Lt. Stewart Walker, Det. Jimmy Phelps, Whitley County Sheriff Captain Todd Shelly And Williamsburg Police Sgt. Jason Caddell.
