ADDISON COUNTY — Over the course of several months, Vermont State Police and Vergennes police have been jointly investigating several thefts in the towns of Vergennes, Panton, Addison and Ferrisburgh.

On Aug. 14 , the state police troopers were notified of an attempted theft from a motor vehicle at a Ferrisburgh home. Video footage of the suspect was obtained, and police identified him as Matthew Porcaro, 31, of Vergennes.

On Aug. 15 Vergennes police confirmed Porcaro was residing at 281 Main St. in Vergennes. A search warrant was executed at the residence, and Porcaro was placed under arrest.

Further criminal charges are pending the completion of several active cases.

Separately, troopers responded at about 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 19, to a report of a shooting at a home on South Hill Road in Goshen. In the end they arrested Jeffrey Young, 49, of Goshen and charged him with attempted murder in the second degree, attempted voluntary manslaughter, aggravated domestic assault, and two counts of reckless endangerment.
