Vermont State Police: Hinesburg woman found in Monkton barn

ADDISON COUNTY — At about 1 a.m. this past Sunday, Jan. 27, Vermont State Police troopers from the New Haven barracks responded to a home on States Prison Hollow Road in Monkton for a report of an individual who had broken into a cow barn.
Troopers found Amanda St. Cyr, 37, of Hinesburg inside of the barn; police said she did not have the permission from the property owners to be there.
Police determined that St. Cyr had driven to the residence; while speaking with her, troopers detected several signs of impairment, so they screened her and ultimately cited her for driving under the influence (third offense), driving with a suspended license and unlawful trespass.
In other recent activity, Vermont State Police:
•  On Jan. 22 at approximately 10 minutes before 8 p.m. responded to a two-car crash on Burpee Road in Bristol. Both cars reportedly sustained substantial contact damage, but no one was injured. A 2008 Subaru Impreza apparently involved in the crash near Plank Road fled the scene. The driver of the other car, a VW bug, gave police a photo of the car that fled and troopers said they identified as Shawn Pomainville, 47, of Starksboro as the driver that had sped away. They cited her for leaving the scene of an accident.
•  On Jan. 22 at 11:20 p.m. stopped a 2008 Saturn Aura after observing an equipment violation on Route 7 in New Haven. Troopers ended up citing Edward Hannon, 60, of New Haven for driving with a criminally suspended license.
•  On Jan. 24 at 9:25 p.m. got a call about a stray dog found under a porch at a home on Sand Road in Ferrisburgh. Police found that the young female husky was wearing an LED blue light collar as well as a black electric collar, but had no other ID tags.
Police took the husky to the New Haven barracks and later to the Vergennes Animal Hospital for the evening and put out the word that it was looking for the dog’s owner. By 10:30 p.m., Cpl. Michelle LeBlanc let the public know that they had reconnected the dog with her owner.
•  On Jan. 24 at 10:20 p.m. were notified of a vehicle parked in the middle of Isham Hill Road in Lincoln with the driver passed out in the front seat. Troopers arrived and spoke with Timothy Lyon, 54, of Starksboro, screened him for drunk driving and cited him for driving under the influence.
•  On Jan. 24 reached out to the public to remind people that four years ago, on Jan. 24, 2015, 24 year-old Denise Hart was last seen leaving a friend’s residence in Sudbury. Her burned vehicle was found two days later and her family reported her missing on Jan. 27. Her remains were found in Goshen in December 2015, and her death was determined to be a homicide, which remains unsolved. Anyone with any information on this, or any other unsolved homicide, is asked to contact Vermont State Police’s Major Crime Unit at 802-244-8781.
•  On Jan. 25 at around 11:30 p.m. the area of Route 116 and Hewitt Road in Bristol to look into a report a car had rolled over in a crash. Upon arriving on scene, troopers found a green 1999 Volkswagen Golf on its roof approximately 10 feet off of the road. Police surmised that Adam Kuhns, 18, of Monkton was driving southbound on Route 116 lightly over the speed limit when he encountered a patch of ice and the road and failed to negotiate a curve, causing the Golf leave the road and overturn. Police issued Kuhns a ticket for driving too fast for conditions, which carries a waiver penalty of $220 and two points on car insurance.
The Vermont State Police was assisted on scene by the Bristol Police Department, Bristol Fire Department, and Dupont Auto.
•  On Jan. 27 notified the public that police are seeking information regarding the theft of a CJ Heavy Hauler trailer from a residence off Main Street in Orwell sometime between 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26, and 10 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 27.
Anyone with information pertaining to this incident or anyone with information regarding suspicious  activity in the area is asked to contact Trooper Gurwicz at the New Haven barracks. Information can also be submitted anonymously online at vtips.info or by texting “CRIMES” (274637) to Keyword: VTIPS. 
•  On Jan. 28 at approximately 4:32 p.m. stopped a motor vehicle Route 116 Middlebury. During the motor vehicle stop, police allege that Lynn Sumner, 36, of Fair Haven lied to the trooper in an effort to implicate another person and further deflect the investigation. Police cited Sumner for providing false information to law enforcement, and issued her tickets for not having the proper inspection for her vehicle, for driving with a suspended license and for “Possession of license certificate.”
