Bristol teens booked in theft-related case
BRISTOL — On July 1 Bristol police took two 13-year-old boys into custody during a pre-arranged sale of stolen property at one of the Mount Abraham Union High School fields, according to a statement by Chief Kevin Gibbs.
The juveniles have been released and cited to appear at the Addison Superior Court Juvenile Division. At least one was in possession of stolen property at the time that police intervened in the July 1 sale, Gibbs alleged. The stolen property was recovered and positively identified, according to police.
Police said that on June 30 they received information about the theft of about $300 in property from a village residence. Further investigation revealed that a 13-year-old male suspect was in possession of the property and a sale had been prearranged.
An investigator for the Vermont Department of Liquor Control aided Bristol police in the intervention of the sale.
“Investigation in this case is ongoing (and) related to additional suspects involved in the theft and possession of the property,” Gibbs said in his report.
