ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police are on the lookout for two men who left their vehicle at the end of a police chase and ran into the woods in Salisbury.
Trooper Hanley reported that on Feb. 15 at 4:16 p.m. VSP attempted to stop a red Chevy Cavalier with Vermont plates on Route 7 in Brandon. There were two occupants in the vehicle, both African American males.
The vehicle did not stop and led VSP on approximately a 9-mile pursuit from Brandon to Salisbury. On West Shore Road near the intersection of Route 53, this vehicle crashed into a small wooded area. Trooper Hanley reported that both men “took leg bail” — ran off — into the woods off the east side of West Shore Road.
Attempts to locate the men were unsuccessful. Both are believed to have sustained injuries from the crash. Anyone with information on the identity of these subjects is encouraged to contact the New Haven VSP barracks at 388-4919.
Separately, VSP are looking for the public’s help in their investigation of a series of burglaries on Camp Road in Monkton. Anybody with information is asked to contact VSP New Haven at 388-4919. Troopers encourage anybody on this road who owns a camp that has been burglarized to file a police report.
A separate burglary was reported in Monkton at the Norris Berry Farm on Feb. 19.
