Vermont State Police: Leicester home broken into during daylight

ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police is asking the public for help in finding the person or people who broke into a home near the Leicester-Whiting town line on Monday.
At a little before 3 p.m. on May 23, Pennie Beach telephoned state police to report a burglary to her home off Leicester Whiting Road. Beach told police that someone had entered her dwelling and stolen a large-screen Samsung TV and a black Apple iPad. The theft happened between 10:45 a.m. and 2:45 p.m.
While troopers were at the scene, concerned neighbors approached and reported seeing a large SUV in the driveway with its hood open. The vehicle was described as tan or champagne-colored, and a Chevrolet or GMC. In addition, the concerned neighbors reported seeing two men, one wearing a faded blue baseball cap with light brown hair, carrying a large black object. The other male, also wearing a baseball cap, had darker brown, curly hair, and was “running” in front of the first male. Both males are described as being approximately 5 foot 4 to 5 foot 8 inches tall, and in the range of approximately 18 to 25 years old.
Anyone who can identify the vehicle and the two males seen at the residence is asked to contact Vermont State Police at the New Haven barracks at 388-4919. Tips may be sent anonymously online at www.vtips.info.
Meanwhile, in the past week state police reported that they cited three people for driving under the influence of alcohol.
First, troopers on May 17 at 3:14 a.m. responded to Route 7 in Leicester just north of the intersection with Fern Lake Road for a motor vehicle crash. Police said a 1999 Dodge Truck driven by 28-year-od Adam Josey of Salisbury had traveled off the west side of the road and struck a tree. A preliminary roadside test showed that Josey’s blood alcohol level was 0.102 percent; the legal limit for driving is 0.08. Police cited Josey for DUI.
Then on May 20 at 8:16 p.m. a trooper stopped a motor vehicle on Route 116 in Bristol for a traffic infraction. State police report that the driver, identified as 44-year-old Andrew Neil of Bristol, provided a preliminary sample of his breath. His blood alcohol content was measured at 0.111 percent. Police cited Neil for DUI, third offense.
Finally, on May 22 at a little before 11 p.m., state police got a report of a vehicle off the road on Weybridge Road in Weybridge. Police found a 2016 Honda Pilot off the road, stuck in the mud, with Lindsay Cartwright, 36, of Charlotte sitting in the driver’s seat; she was not injured. Police said Cartwright showed signs of impairment and refused standardized field sobriety tests. The trooper took Cartwright to the New Haven barracks and cited her for DUI.
In other activity, troopers:
•  On May 14 at 3:24 p.m. looked into a report of a family fight at the Brookside Trailer Park in Starksboro. Police said it turned out to be a dispute between neighbors. The trooper arrested Kelly Husk, 33, of Starksboro and cited him for violating a relief from abuse order.
• On May 19 at approximately 10:22 a.m. went to the scene of a two-vehicle crash on Route 7 at the intersection of Monkton Road in Ferrisburgh.
Police said their investigation determined both vehicles were traveling southbound on Route 7 approaching the intersection. When the traffic light turned yellow, the front vehicle, a 2015 Subaru Outback driven by 45-year-old Cherie Maynard of Benson, came to a stop. Police report that the driver of the second vehicle, 44-year-old Anna Charlebois-Ouellette of Ferrisburgh, was looking down and did not see the vehicle in front of her stop; her 2015 BMW X5 struck the rear of the Outback. Maynard was transported to Porter Hospital for evaluation of neck pain.
Police issued Charlebois-Ouellette a ticket for following too closely.
The Ferrisburgh Fire Department, Vergennes Area Rescue Squad and Vergennes police assisted the VSP.
