Vergennes Police Log: Chance meeting results in citations

VERGENNES — An encounter with the Vergennes Police Department’s Drug Recognition Expert in a city convenience store led to multiple charges for a Vergennes woman on May 11.
Police allege that Kathleen Ayers, 48, showed signs of impairment when she ran into the DRE at the Small City Market that Friday. The DRE alleged that Ayers then failed sobriety testing, and Ayers, who allegedly drove to the store, was cited for Driving Under the Influence of Drugs, third offense; driving with a criminally suspended license; and violating conditions of release.
In other action between May 7 and 13 Vergennes police:
On May 7 cited three Northlands Job Corps students for larceny for the alleged theft of $740 from a Northlands employee. cited were Keon Carter, 19, of Waterbury, Conn.; Killian Melecio, 18, of Fieldsboro, N.J.; and Roy Angus, 20, of Hartford, Conn.
On May 8:
•  Calmed a man and woman arguing at a Hillside Drive apartment and stood by while the man retrieved belongings; Vermont State Police assisted and drove the man to a Ferrisburgh home.
•  Investigated a possible assault at Northlands in which an employee who tried to calm two arguing students allegedly was pushed by one of the students, a female; the employee told police she was not pushed, but felt threatened, and the student was expelled.
