Vermont State Police Log: Salisbury woman cited by drug task force

ADDISON COUNTY — State police in the Vermont Drug Task Force last week cited a Salisbury woman for sale of cocaine base, but authorities said is otherwise known as crack cocaine.
On June 6 police cited Virginia Gillett, 33, into criminal court for sale of cocaine base. Gillett is part of an ongoing investigation into the distribution of cocaine in Rutland County, Sgt. Casey J. Daniell, Narcotics Investigation Unit Supervisor, reported. 
Members of the Vermont Drug Task Force coordinated controlled purchases of cocaine base from Gillett on two separate occasions, Daniell reported. Gillett was issued the citation at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility, where she was being held on unrelated charges. 
Gillett is due to answer the charge in Rutland Superior Court, criminal division, on July 17.
Separately, Vermont State Police cited a number of Vermonters for driving under the influence in Addison County in the past week or so. 
On June 10 troopers responded to a report of an impaired driver on Main Street in Vergennes at a little after 3 a.m. State police located the vehicle at Champlain Farms and made contact with the operator, who they identified as 21-year-old Sara Kimball of Shoreham. After detecting signs of alcohol impairment and screening her for DUI, police took Kimball to the New Haven barracks and cited her for DUI.
Police report that a few hours later, at 5:10 a.m., Cyle Chaplin, 25, of Essex Junction arrived at the barracks, after having driven there, to pick up a person who had just been processed for DUI. Troopers stopped Chaplin in the parking lot and say they detected signs of impairment. After screening Chaplin, they cited him for DUI, too.
That incident followed several other DUI citations last week.
On June 6 at around a quarter to 2 a.m. state police stopped a vehicle on North Main Street in Rutland after getting a report that the driver was intoxicated and observing several traffic violations. Police screened the driver, identified as Thomas J. Reed, 47, of Brandon, for drunk driving, took him to the Rutland state police barracks and cited him for DUI.
Later that day at approximately 3:17 p.m. hours, troopers responded with the Bristol Rescue Squad and Lincoln Fire Department to a report that a vehicle had gone off Ripton Road in Lincoln and struck a utility pole. State police arrived on scene and detected signs of impairment in the driver, identified as Randy Little, 28, of Ripton. The trooper screened Little roadside and took him to the New Haven barracks for processing and later released him after issuing a citation for DUI.
On June 8 at approximately 5:30 a.m. stopped a vehicle driven by Caroline de Lime Beltrao, 44, of Shoreham for driving 65 mph in a posted 50 mph zone on Route 22A in Panton. State police said she showed signs of impairment, screened her, took her to the state police barracks and cited Beltrao for DUI.
Meanwhile, state police on June 8 spotted two different people behind the wheel who troopers knew had suspended licenses, and in both instances pulled them over and cited them for driving with a criminally suspended license. First, at a little before 4:30 p.m. troopers stopped a vehicle driven by 33-year-old George Sheldrick of Weybridge on Route 7 in New Haven after he drove by a trooper who knew Sheldrick’s license status. After taking Sheldrick to the New Haven barracks, police cited him for driving with a criminally suspended license.
That same day at 6:20 p.m. troopers observed 24-year-old Marlena Laws of Vergennes driving a black Volkswagen Jetta on Main Street in Vergennes. State police also took Laws to the barracks and cited her for driving with a suspended license and for violation of conditions of release.
A similar story was repeated twice in the next two days. On June 9 at 8 p.m. troopers dealing with an unrelated incident saw a motor vehicle pass them on Mason Hill Road North in Starksboro and recognized the driver as Christopher J. Giroux, 33, of Starksboro. The officers later located Giroux at his home and cited him for driving with a criminally suspended license.
On June 10, again while investigating an unrelated incident, troopers saw Asher McCauley, 20, of Bristol drive past them on Meehan Road in Bristol. After McCauley parked in a driveway, officers confronted him and confirmed he was violating his court ordered conditions, which state he is not allowed to drive a motor vehicle unless he has a valid driver license. After a trip to the barracks for processing, police cited McCauley for violation of conditions of release.
In other recent activity, troopers:
• On June 8 at a few minutes past midnight were notified of a break-in at the Lincoln General Store, during which the culprit(s) stolen around 10 packs of cigarettes. State police report that their investigation showed that someone entered through the front door and stole the cigarettes — Marlboro Red Labels, Marlboro Golds and American Spirits brands. Anyone with any information about this crime is asked contact the state police’s New Haven barracks at 388-4919.
• On June 9 at 10 minutes past midnight responded to a report of a family fight at a Ripton home. Police said their investigation shoed that John Ryea, 34, of New Haven caused fear of imminent serious bodily injury to a household member, then disabled the telephone so emergency services could not be reached. Police took Ryea into custody, lodged him for lack of $500 bail and cited him for domestic assault and interfering with access to emergency services.
