ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police cited four people for driving under the influence in four separate incidents in Addison County on June 20, 23 and 24.
While troopers were conducting a sobriety checkpoint on Route 7 in Ferrisburgh on Wednesday, June 20, they pulled over a car driven by Randall Raymond, 56, of Salisbury at 9:25 p.m. for sobriety screening. Police cited Raymond for DUI.
The next incident took place on Saturday, June 23, at 1:35 a.m. on Route 7 in Ferrisburgh. Troopers stopped Thomas Gracie, 18, of Bristol, arrested him on suspicion of DUI and transported him to the New Haven barracks. Gracie was cited for DUI and released.
Then at 11 p.m. on June 23, troopers stopped Kyle Kowalczyk, 55, on Route 7 in New Haven. State police cited the Ripton resident for DUI at the New Haven Barracks and released him.
The fourth arrest, for DUI-drugs, took place on June 24 at 10:35 p.m. on Route 7 in Rutland. State police report that Amber Thomas, 22, of Shoreham showed signs of drug impairment during a traffic stop. Troopers arrested Thomas, processed her at the Rutland barracks, cited her for DUI-drugs and then released her.
In other recent activity, Vermont State Police:
•  On June 20 at 6:50 a.m. responded to a two-car, head-on collision on Route 30 in Cornwall. Police said that their preliminary investigation showed that the driver of the first car, 27-year-old Rosemary Jerome of Cornwall, had been stopped at the stop sign at the intersection of Route 30 and Sperry Road. The second driver, Keith Williams, 63, of Bristol, was driving toward Jerome and unsuccessfully attempted to avoid her car, resulting in a collision. Both Jerome and Williams were transported to Porter Hospital with serious injuries. Police do not suspect that impaired driving was a factor.
•  On June 18 at around 12:52 p.m. responded to a reported theft of money from a cash register at the Shoreham Service Center on Route 22A in Shoreham. Troopers arrested a store employee, Katherine O’Dell, 22, of Whiting, who police said eventually admitted to stealing $200 from the register the night before. State police cited O’Dell for petit larceny and released her.
•  On June 20 between 8 and 9:30 p.m., conducted a DUI checkpoint on Route 7 in Ferrisburgh, resulting in eight screenings for possible impairment and two arrests for DUI and DUI-drugs. State police said they will continue similar types of enforcement through the upcoming Fourth of July holiday.
•  On June 20 conducted a saturation patrol on Route 22A in the designated “Safety Corridor.” The purpose of the patrol was to detect aggressive, distracted and impaired drivers, as well as to conduct speed enforcement and promote highway safety and reduce crashes. Troopers stopped 14 motor vehicles for various violations and screened two drivers for suspicion of DUI. VSP Lt. Jeffrey Danoski said these patrols will continue through the next few months.
•  On June 25 at 1:30 a.m., stopped a car on Route 17 in New Haven driven by Benjamin Smith, 38, of Addison. Troopers found that Smith was driving with a criminally suspended license, and arrested and cited him.
