Vermont State Police Log: Woman cited for theft of cancer donations

ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police cited Sherry Vukoder, 59, of Addison for petit larceny alleging that on Aug. 8 she stole some cash from a cancer survivor donation jar that had been set up at the Jolley gas station on Route 7 in Ferrisburgh.
Police said their investigation revealed “clear and convincing evidence” that led them to Vukoder, whom they cited on Aug. 12.
Vukoder is scheduled to answer to the charge on Sept. 19 in Addison Superior Court, criminal division, according to police.
In other recent activity, troopers:
•  On Aug. 8 at approximately 12:50 p.m. assisted Bristol police with a motor vehicle stop near the intersection of Ferson Road and Route 7 in Leicester. After a short investigation police determined that the driver, identified as 40-year-old Jeremy Craig of Hudson Falls, N.Y., had been operating the vehicle while under the influence and with a criminally suspended license. A preliminary breath sample showed that Craig’s blood alcohol content was 0.137 percent; the legal limit for driving is 0.08. Police cited Craig for DUI, fourth offense, and driving with a criminally suspended license.
•  On Aug. 14 at approximately 9:14 a.m. state police received a report of a collision between a cyclist and a vehicle on Lake Dunmore Road in Salisbury. The trooper reported that preliminary investigation showed that the cyclist, identified as 53-year-old John Maunders of Quebec, failed to stop or yield at an intersection and subsequently collided with a vehicle driven by Margaret Spink, 72, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., who was driving a 2010 Chrysler Town and Country van westbound on Lake Dunmore Road at approximately 20 mph. Maunders was subsequently transported to UVM Medical Center to be treated for his injuries. Spink was uninjured by the collision and her vehicle sustained moderate contact damage as a result of the collision. No court action was anticipated.
•  On Aug. 14 at about 2:55 p.m. troopers from the New Haven barracks were called to a one-car crash on Delorm Road in Leicester. The officers determined that Dustin Hutchinson, 27, of Leicester was driving a Toyota pickup truck northbound on Delorm Road when he lost control of the truck and traveled off the east side of the roadway into a ditch. Hutchinson’s truck sustained damage to its rear passenger side and was towed from the scene.
Troopers also determined that Hutchinson had been drinking and he was subsequently arrested and transported to the New Haven barracks, where he was processed for DUI. A preliminary breath test showed a blood alcohol content of 0.19 percent. Hutchinson is scheduled to answer the charge in Addison County Superior Court, criminal division, on Aug. 29.
•  Vermont State Police announced that there will be a sobriety checkpoint(s) conducted in Addison County by area law enforcement within the next three weeks. This will be done in an effort to monitor the flow of traffic along Vermont’s highways in the interest of detecting and arresting persons under the influence of alcohol or any drug that has impaired their ability to operate a motor vehicle.
