Vergennes Police Log: Police return wallets, assist truck enforcement

VERGENNES — Among other activity between March 21 and 27, Vergennes police handled two lost wallets, participated in a special truck enforcement detail with state officials, and dealt with two alleged assaults in which they ended up not filing charges.
In that week, Vergennes police:
• On March 21 went to help Vermont State Police and Addison County Sheriff’s Department deputies with a domestic dispute in a car on Plank Road; police said it turned out to be an argument and not an assault.
• On March 22 served an abuse-prevention order on a city resident.
• On March 22 spoke to downtown business owners about employees parking in Main Street spaces.
• On March 23 contacted the owners of two wallets found and then brought to the police station, one by a woman and handed to police, and one just left in the lobby.
• On March 23 conducted truck enforcement with Department of Motor Vehicle personnel on Routes 7 and 22A; police said they ordered three vehicles off the road, two for equipment problems and one for driver’s logbook violations.
• On March 24 heard from a city resident that his ex-wife was sending him threatening text messages. Police issued the woman a no-trespass order on the man’s residence.
• On March 25 were told a man’s wife had just left home while driving under the influence of drugs. Police tracked her to a motel in Ticonderoga, N.Y., and police there determined she was fine.
• On March 25 stood by while a tow truck pulled a tractor-trailer truck from a ditch on West Main Street.
• On March 25 called an acquaintance to stay with a drunken woman at a Hillside Drive apartment.
• On March 25 were informed by Northlands Job Corps security of a brawl involving several students. Police said Northlands security provided them with statements, but students were not cooperative with an investigation; police sent the statements to the Addison County State’s Attorney’s Office.
• On March 25 confiscated marijuana at a Main Street traffic stop.
• On March 25 ticketed the driver of a car stopped on Main Street for speeding and possession of drug paraphernalia, and issued court diversion paperwork to a minor passenger for possession of marijuana.
• On March 26 heard conflicting stories about a domestic incident: A man said a woman hit him with a frying pan, while the woman said the situation was verbal only, and that she was fine. No citations were issued.
• On March 27 helped a woman get into her locked car at a Main Street business.
• On March 27 aided VSP and the Vergennes Area Rescue Squad by helping to calm an out-of-control female patient on Greenbush Road in Ferrisburgh.
