Fraud Conviction And Sentencing

Richmond National Battlefield Park

National Park News

In October, 2006, interpretive rangers stationed at the Chimborazo Medical Museum contacted protection rangers and advised them that a man was attempting to make repeated returns of merchandise that he’d allegedly purchased – but for which he could not produce any receipts. Surveillance was set up at the site and rangers identified the man as Russell Payne. While running an NCIC check on him, Payne fled on foot, reached his car, and left the area. An arrest warrant was obtained and he was later taken into custody by officers from the Albemarle County Sheriff’s Department. On July 1st, Payne was convicted of theft of government property and fleeing to elude police. He was sentenced to one year in prison, banned from all National Park sites in the states of Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia for five years, and ordered to pay restitution for all monies he received in his fraudulent returns. Payne has an extensive criminal history of theft and drug convictions.
