Vermont State Police Log: Police seek info on Shoreham-area break-ins

ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police are investigating a string of burglaries at homes in southern Addison and northern Rutland counties during the daytime on Monday, Aug. 8.
Troopers were dispatched to four different reports of home burglaries: one on North Orwell Road in Shoreham; two on Lake Road in Benson and one at a residence on Main Road in West Haven.
Investigations suggest that several homes were entered forcefully. Family jewelry, wedding bands, watches, cutlery, coins and laptop computers were reported stolen from the houses. Evidence was recovered at several residences and is pending submission to the Vermont Forensic Laboratory.
All four burglaries were reported to have occurred during daytime hours and all four residences were unattended at the time they were entered.
