MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police were informed of the alleged theft of an unspecified quantity of narcotics from Porter Hospital on Sept. 17. Police said investigation of the matter continues.
This incident is being investigated by Porter Hospital officials, who are doing an accounting of their medication supplies, according to Middlebury police Sgt. Mike Christopher. Middlebury police will proceed with further investigation once that information is complete.
In other action last week, Middlebury police:
MONKTON — Vermont state police are investigating the theft of several guns from a Monkton home. Troopers on Sunday responded to a home on Mountain Road where homeowners told police that someone had stolen several guns, scopes, tools and thousands of rounds of ammunition from their home.
The guns were a .50 caliber bolt-action sniper rifle, an M1 carbine, a 12-gauge shotgun, a 9mm Spectre pistol, a .45 caliber Ruger semi-automatic pistol and .300 Winchester Magnum rifle. The ammunition stolen was an assortment of those calibers.
MIDDLEBURY — People traveling between Brandon and Middlebury via Route 7 this week should prepare for some potential traffic delays due to a substantial road repaving project.
Paving work may force lane closures around the construction areas. Traffic control officials will assist in maintaining traffic flow. Motorists should anticipate traffic delays while proceeding through the project, and plan accordingly.

I spent the morning of my 39th birthday in the waiting room of the Middlebury DMV.
Here are a few things that you should know:
-The Middlebury DMV is a "mobile" DMV, which means that it's not in operation every day. It's open for business in the Middlebury Courthouse every Thursday, and alternating Wednesdays. That's it.
