Vergennes Police Log: Cops kept busy with routine incidents

VERGENNES — Incidents for the Vergennes police department between Nov. 18 and 24 included retail theft, a domestic dispute, two phone problems and one allegedly drunk driver.
During that week-long period, Vergennes police:
•  On Nov. 18 spoke to a woman who came into the station and was concerned about her son’s apparent use of illegal drugs.
•  On Nov. 18 cited a female juvenile for retail theft for allegedly stealing two pregnancy kits from Kinney Drug Store. Police said this case was unrelated to another recent citation for theft of pregnancy kits from the same store.
•  On Nov. 18 spoke with a Northlands Job Corps student who was receiving unwanted text messages on his cell phone; police determined they were probably arriving because of careless web browsing, and advised the student to be careful while using the Internet.
•  On Nov. 19 responded to a domestic dispute between a man and a woman at a Main Street apartment; police said it apparently began when the woman accused the man of stealing a pot pipe and escalated when she told him she would end their relationship.

•  On Nov. 22 dealt with a minor two-car accident at the intersection of Main and South Maple streets.
