Vergennes Police Log: Cars entered and rummaged through

VERGENNES — Among incidents between Jan. 26 and Feb. 1, Vergennes police issued court diversion paperwork to two Vergennes Union High School students, recovered a stolen bicycle, and dealt with two more in a recent rash of cases of cars being entered and rummaged through.
In that seven-day span, Vergennes police:
•  On Jan. 27 issued court diversion paperwork to two VUHS students seen smoking marijuana near the school. Police confiscated the drug and also ticketed one student for possession of paraphernalia.
•  On Jan. 27 responded to a report of a truck stuck at the downtown traffic light; it was gone when they arrived.
•  On Jan. 27 questioned a suspect after a car parked on School Street was rummaged through; police did not make an arrest and said nothing appeared to have been taken. On Jan. 28 they were told a car parked on North Maple Street had also been gone through; again, nothing seemed to be missing.
•  On Jan. 29 backed up Vermont State Police at a domestic dispute involving several people on Hunt Road in New Haven.
•  On Jan. 30 responded to a report of vandalism to a car behind a Main Street apartment building. Police determined the vandalism complaint was unfounded, but said they discovered a bike that had been stolen from an East Street home stashed behind the building. Police returned the bike to its owner.
•  On Jan. 30 contacted a driver who had left Small City Market without paying for gas.
•  On Jan. 30 issued a no-trespass order to a man that a Meigs Road resident said had threatened to come to his home and do him harm.
•  On Jan. 30 helped a car owner get into a locked vehicle on MacDonough Drive.
•  On Jan. 31 backed up VSP at Whispering Pines Campground in Panton, where a man was threatening to shoot himself. Police said the incident ended peacefully.
•  On Jan. 31 stopped a car that had been reported driving erratically on Route 22A and determined there was no problem.
•  On Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 ticketed cars in violation of the city’s wintertime parking ban; the car ticketed on Feb. 1 was also towed.
•  On Feb. 1 responded to a minor two-car accident on South Water Street.
