Vergennes Police Log: Arguing sisters calmed four times by police
VERGENNES — Four times between April 4 and 8 Vergennes police were called to a West Main Street residence to calm arguing sisters.
At the first visit on April 4 city police helped family members make plans for one of the sisters to move out on April 7, including removing all her possessions. On April 5 and 6 police calmed disputes between the two women.
On April 8 they returned to mediate a dispute between the sister who remained behind and the sister who left, who they said refused to turn over a key until a cell phone was returned to her.
