Vergennes Police Log for Feb. 21

VERGENNES — In an otherwise mostly calm week between Feb. 11 and 17, Vergennes police continued to operate a number of directed patrols designed to control speeding and enhance traffic safety within city limits.
During those seven days police conducted 14 directed patrols and issued 16 tickets for infractions, mostly speeding.
Streets patrolled were West Main, South Water, Green, Victory and Main, plus Monkton and Panton roads and Armory Lane.
Vergennes police also continued to ticket vehicles left on city streets in violation of the city’s wintertime ban on overnight parking. They tagged four vehicles during the night of Feb. 12 and another three on Feb. 16.
In other action between Feb. 11 and 17, Vergennes police:
On Feb. 11 contacted the city animal control officer about a dog running loose and harassing chickens on South Water Street. The complainant took the dog into his home because it was cold outside, and the officer took it to the humane society in Middlebury, where the owner eventually picked it up after receiving a warning from police.

•  Received a report of vandalism to a vehicle for insurance purposes.
•  Dealt with a complaint filed by a John Graham Shelter resident of unwanted text messages from an unknown party.
On Feb. 13 looked unsuccessfully for a vehicle reported to be going 60 mph on West Main Street.
