“As this matter is now before the courts, the club will not be making any further comments.”
When contacted by 7NEWS Perth on Sunday afternoon, Richmond was unaware of Pickett’s arrest.
He had stayed in Perth after helping in the Tigers’ win over Fremantle on Saturday night.
Pickett has been charged by WA Police with four counts of grand burglary.
His other charges include three counts of theft and three counts of damaging property.
Pickett made his AFL debut in the 2019 Grand Final, scoring in the Premier League win.
In 2020 he won a second Premier League with Richmond.
His contract with the Tigers expires at the end of the season.
