BRISTOL — Bristol police continue to investigate the Sept. 4 burglary of the Maplefields convenience store on West Street, as well as a number of thefts in and near Bristol Village reported on Sept. 12 and 13.
The police have received more than one name of potential people connected to the Maplefields burglary, said Chief Bruce Nason in an email to the Independent, and they are following up on some information they received regarding a 1995 Honda Fourtrax 300, which was reported stolen from Plank Road on Sept. 12.
