Vermont State Police Log: Troopers seek help identifying suspects

ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police are looking for the public’s help in identifying the people in some store surveillance photos who are suspects in the theft of a credit card from a Ferrisburgh home.
On the evening of Aug. 31, state police received a report of a burglary at a home on Little Chicago Road in Ferrisburgh. The resident’s purse was stolen, which held photo identification, and debit and credit cards.
After further investigation, troopers from the New Haven barracks were notified that one of the stolen cards was used at several locations on Sept. 1 in the Chittenden County area, including at Price Chopper in Burlington, Lids in South Burlington, and Exxon Mobil in Winooski.
State police are asking for help in identifying the individuals depicted in the accompanying store surveillance photographs. It is believed that these individuals may be linked to the burglary in Ferrisburgh.
Anyone with information regarding the burglary and credit card fraud is asked to contact the New Haven state police barracks at 802-388-4919. Information can also be submitted anonymously online at www.vtips.info or by texting “CRIMES” (274637) to keyword: VTIPS.
In other recent activity, state police:
•  On Aug. 31 received a report from a New Hampshire woman who said she had just picked up her 48-year-old sister from Hancock and that the sister had said that she was being sexually assaulted by a neighbor. It was also reported that the sister suffered from a mental disability. After what police called “a thorough investigation,” troopers on Sept. 5 arrested Roy Patten, 64, of Hancock and cited him for aggravated sexual assault. Patten was processed and lodged at the Marble Valley Correctional Center for lack of $25,000 bail.
•  On Sept. 2 at approximately 5:53 p.m. responded to a one-car crash on Route 30 just south of Swamp Road in Whiting. When troopers arrived on scene they met with the driver, identified as 23-year-old Morgan Harvey of Whiting. Harvey told police that she was driving northbound when a vehicle traveling southbound crossed the centerline, so she swerved to miss the oncoming vehicle and ended up in the swamp. State Police do not believe alcohol or drugs played a factor in the crash.
Harvey was cited for driving with a criminally suspended license. The Honda Civic she was driving sustained major damage.
•  On Sept. 3 at approximately 10:30 a.m. responded to a theft complaint at the Addison Four Corners Store. The trooper was told that a store video surveillance camera captured images of a man stealing a Humane Society Donation Safe Box with an estimated $90 inside. After further investigation, state police identified the man committing the theft as Terence J. Morris, 58, of Middlebury and they cited him for petit larceny.
•  On Sept. 4 at 8:30 p.m. were called to a Bristol residence where a man was threatening to shoot himself. Norman Michaud, 56, had threatened to shoot himself at 62 Pine St. Once they were on the scene, police learned that Tina LaBoissiere, 42, of Crown Point, N.Y., was also inside the home and had a gun. Using her son as an intermediary, police spoke with LaBossiere and asked her to put down the gun and meet officers in the driveway. Officers saw LaBossiere walking down the driveway toward them while “waving a large handgun.” After the woman ignored repeated commands to drop the weapon, police said, Vermont State Police Sgt. Michael Dion fired once and struck LaBossiere.
Officers moved up the long driveway and found Michaud lying on the ground outside the home with a gunshot wound to his head. LaBossiere and Michaud were also taken to Fletcher Allen Health Care. As of Tuesday morning, the hospital said Michaud was in critical condition; a hospital spokeswoman said LaBossiere’s condition was unavailable.
Sgt. Dion, 37, was placed on administrative leave with pay, per department policy, while the incident is under investigation. See a full story online at addisonindependent.com.
•  On Sept. 6 at approximately 3:58 p.m. were detailed to Plank Road in Bristol for a reported traffic crash, where a blue, 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe had struck a utility pole. Police report that the 16-year-old driver was westbound on the gravel road when she lost control of the vehicle and struck the power pole. The driver, who was wearing a seat belt, was treated by the Bristol Rescue Squad at the scene and released to her family. Neither distracted driving nor impaired driving were considered to be contributing factors in this crash. This investigation remains active.
•  On Sept. 8 at approximately 11:34 p.m. received a report of an intoxicated person on the side of Route 7 north of Town Hill Road in New Haven. After some investigation state police discovered the person in question was celebrating their 21st birthday and troopers found that Alycia Labor, 23, of Vergennes was driving a car transporting the intoxicated person. Police said Labor was under the influence of alcohol while operating a motor vehicle and they cited her for DUI.
