Vermont State Police Log: Two men cited for heroin possession by state police

ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police cited two county men for possession of heroin in separate incidents this past week.
First, on May 3 at around 9:20 p.m., state police received a call from Middlebury Regional EMS requesting assistance with an unresponsive man, who was found unresponsive in his parked vehicle near the Snake Mountain trail head on Mountain Road in Addison. They identified the man as Japheth Kehoe, 33, of Bridport.
Upon arrival of state police, Middlebury rescue told troopers that Kehoe was now awake and alert after they had administered Narcan, the overdose antidote, to Kehoe.
Police report that their investigation showed that Kehoe had used heroin that Wednesday, and after Kehoe consented to a search of his vehicle, police said they found more heroin.
After medical staff cleared him, police arrested Kehoe for possession of heroin and transported to the New Haven state police barracks for processing.
Kehoe was released after being cited for possession and ticketed for several civil violations: driving with a suspended license, having plates not assigned to the vehicle, no insurance, and an inspection sticker not assigned to the vehicle as well as the inspection being expired.
Separately, on this past Sunday, May 7, at approximately 6:39 p.m. hours, a caller alerted state police to a man who appeared to be passed out inside his vehicle parked in a pull off on Munger Street in New Haven. Before troopers got there, the Bristol Rescue Squad arrived and rescue personnel told police that the man was acting strangely and trying to leave.
When state police arrived on the scene, the rescue staff told them that the man, identified as 36-year-old Benjamin Broughton of Bristol, was showing signs indicative of opiate usage.
Broughton granted consent for troopers to search his vehicle, and police say they found evidence of heroin usage.
Broughton was cleared on scene by medical staff, arrested for possession of heroin and transported to the New Haven state police barracks for processing.
Police also cited Broughton for a civil violation of driving with a suspended license.
In other recent activity, troopers:
•  On May 2 at 6:30 a.m. responded to a one-car crash on West River Road east of Forge Hill Road in Lincoln. The driver wasn’t with the car with police arrived, but they found him at his residence. Police say they determined that Nicholas Jennings, 35, of Lincoln was driving a 1999 Volvo V70 eastbound on West River Road in the rain when he drove off the roadway and collided with the guardrail on an embankment. This caused the vehicle to roll over on the passenger side causing damage. The vehicle was later towed from the scene. Jennings was unhurt. Police said neither alcohol nor drugs were factors in the collision. State police were assisted by the Lincoln Fire Department and rescue squad.
•  On May 5 at a little before 10 p.m. were called to a three-vehicle crash on Route 2A in Williston; a Bristol woman was involved.
Police report that Taylor Grenier, 22, of Bristol was driving a 2015 Toyota on Route 2A and stopped when the car in front of her stopped to turn left. An Essex 17-year-old driving a MiniCooper failed to see that the cars in front of her had stopped and she rear-ended Grenier’s Toyota, causing significant damage to Grenier’s car and totally demolishing her own. The Toyota in the middle was pushed forward into the first car in the line and struck it, as well.
All of the drivers were evaluated at the scene and released without injuries. The cause of the crash is still under investigation but is believed to be driver inattention.
•  On May 8 at approximately 6:30 p.m. checked a report of a family fight on Silver Street in Monkton. It was reported that one man, identified as Robert LaRock, 58, of Monkton, had left the scene in his vehicle. State police located LaRock and cited him for driving under the influence of alcohol.
