Vergennes Police Log for Mar. 14

VERGENNES — It appears Vergennes vehicle owners have not even this late in winter gotten the message that it is not legal to park vehicles on city streets overnight between December and March. 
On six nights between March 4 and 10 Vergennes police ticketed vehicles left on city streets overnight in violation of the city’s winter parking ban. In all, police ticketed nine vehicles and ordered one to be towed. 
Police also continued to run a series of directed patrols on city streets intended to enforce traffic laws, notably speeding. In that seven-day period city police conducted seven such patrols around the city and ticketed 11 motorists.
In other action between March 4 and 10, Vergennes police: 
On March 4:
•Helped Vermont State Police by responding to a one-car crash in Monkton.
•Stopped a vehicle on Route 7 in Ferrisburgh after a report or erratic driving and determined the driver was not impaired.
On March 5 backed up state police while they dealt with an assault case at Aubuchon Hardware in Ferrisburgh.
On March 6:
•Dealt with minor two-car accidents on West Main Street and in the Shaw’s Supermarket parking lot.
•Euthanized a deer that had been struck by a vehicle on Monkton Road in Monkton.
•Looked unsuccessfully for a car reported to be speeding on High Street.
•Checked a home for a resident who was absent.
On March 7 dealt with a report of an assault at Northlands Job Corps and decided the incident did not merit charges.
On March 9 handled a minor two-car crash on Main Street.
On March 10:
•Told a man to stop illegal use of a Main Street Dumpster.
•On behalf of state police checked out a report of a suspicious man with a flashlight at the intersection of Plank Road and Route 7, but found no one.
