VERMONT — Spring weather is here and there will be an increase in recreational hikers parking their vehicles at trailheads throughout Vermont. Last year there were numerous car break-ins at various hiking access locations in Vermont. In a recent press release, Vermont State Police Cpl. Andrew Leise said these break-ins were due in part to the ongoing heroin and opiate challenges the state currently faces.
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police investigated the theft of a cash register from the Rice Restaurant on Seymour Street on Saturday, April 18.
Police said a man grabbed the register during business hours (at around 5:20 p.m.) and ran out the door. A witness reported the culprit ran into a wooded, swampy area off Maple Street, where he may have dumped the register.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact Middlebury police at 388-3191.
In other action last week, Middlebury police:
We are starting to move outward now. The turning point came a few days before Easter, when I looked outside one morning and saw that there was more bare ground than snow visible through the window.
