Vermont State Police Log: Driver cited for possession of cocaine
ADDISON COUNTY — On Monday, April 30, at around 7 p.m. Vermont State Police were conducting what they called a “routine patrol” on Route 66 in Waltham when a trooper saw a vehicle pass them and recognized the driver as Bryon Tinker, whose license the trooper knew was suspended. The officer also witnessed a motor vehicle violation, so he stopped Tinker, 41, of Jericho.
During the traffic stop, troopers saw indicators leading them to believe there were illicit drugs in the vehicle. Police seized the vehicle and had it towed back to the New Haven state police barracks. After getting a search warrant, police went through the car and report that they located cocaine along with other drug paraphernalia there.
State police cited Tinker for possession of cocaine and driving with a criminally suspended license. He is due to answer the charges on July 23 in Addison Superior Court, criminal division.
In other recent activity, troopers:
• On April 23 at approximately 5:15 p.m. saw another person known to have a suspended license but driving a motor vehicle on Swamp Road in Whiting anyway. Troopers stopped the car and cited Martin Landon, 46, of Whiting for driving with a criminally suspended license.
• On April 28 at 9:37 a.m. responded to a report of a one-car crash on Route 30 in Cornwall.
