BURLINGAME—Monday evening, the Burlingame City Council accepted
the resignation of a part-time police officer recently charged
with burglary of a rural residence and theft of city-owned gasoline.
The council had suspended officer Anthony Richman, 38, without
pay during a May 20 special meeting. The Osage County Sheriff’s
Office arrested Richman the next day.
On May 25, Osage County Attorney Brandon Jones filed two counts
of felony residential burglary, one count of criminal trespass,
and 12 counts of misdemeanor theft against Richman. Ten of the
theft charges allege Richman obtained gasoline from Burlingame
Coop using a city-owned charge card, during a time period between
Jan. 1 and April 24.
The burglary charges allege Richman entered a rural Burlingame
residence in December with the intent to commit theft; two of
the theft charges allege Richman took property worth less than
$1,000, including copper, a bed and a glass vase.
