Vermont State Police Log: Sleeping New Haven driver cited for DUI-drugs

ADISON COUNTY — A concerned citizen flagged down a Vermont State Police cruiser on Tuesday, Jan. 9, at approximately 8:15 p.m. in the parking lot of the Jiffy Mart on Route 7 in New Haven. The citizen told troopers that there was a woman slumped over in the driver’s seat of a white 2006 Chevy Impala in the parking lot.
Troopers saw the woman passed out in the driver’s seat, woke her up and determined that she did need medical attention.
While speaking with the woman, the troopers detected signs of impairment and the strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. They screened the woman, identified as 59-year-old Annette Adams of New Haven, for driving under the influence and ultimately arrested her for driving under the influence of drugs.
They took Adams to the New Haven state police barracks for processing, cited her for DUI-drugs and released her with instructions to answer the change in Addison Superior Court, criminal division, on April 2.
In other recent activity, Vermont State Police:
•  On Jan. 9 cited Nancy L. Shaw, 64, of Hancock for false pretense or tokens after an investigation conducted by the Vermont State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigations. Police alleged that Shaw put stop payment on several checks with the knowledge that their intended recipient had already cashed them, and Shaw later withdrew the money and did not return it when requested by Lake Sunapee Bank.
•  On Jan. 10 at approximately 8:30 a.m. responded to a one-car crash on Route 74 near Route 30 in Cornwall. According to the complainant, the operator appeared unsteady and did not seem right.
Police report that 83-year-old Harry Gero of Shoreham was driving a 2005 Chevy Silverado pickup westbound on Route 74 when, he said, he saw another vehicle in his lane and so Gero swerved his vehicle into the opposing lane.

No injuries were reported.
Anyone who may have witnessed this crash is asked to contact the Vermont State Police, New Haven barracks at 388-4919. This case is open pending further investigation. Criminal charges are also pending in this case.
