Crime Stoppers needs your help to locate a dangerous fugitive that is wanted by the Richmond Police Department.

Detoin Sherod Melton is wanted for his participation in a home invasion robbery that occurred in Richmond’s South Side back on January 13. Melton, along with two other males, forced their way into the victim’s homes while brandishing a shotgun. The suspects stole several items from the victim to include the keys to his car. Melton and one of the suspects left in the victim’s vehicle while the third male was seen leaving in a 4 door gold Impala. One of the suspects has been arrested for his involvement in the incident, but Melton is still wanted for his participation. Melton is a black male, about 5’ 3” tall and weighs about 130 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
