Tetreault charged with hunting, gun crimes
MIDDLEBURY — Vermont State Game Wardens said a Middlebury man illegally possessed turkey and deer he was not allowed to hunt, and also illegally possessed firearms and stolen property.
Kyle Tetreault, 30, was arraigned on the charges in Addison Superior Court, Criminal Division, on Monday. The specific charges he faced are possession of illegal big game, failure to report big game, petit larceny, possession of methamphetamine, and felon in possession of firearms.
The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife Department said that wardens, assisted by the ATF (Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms), Vermont State and Middlebury police, executed a search warrant on May 14 and found the contraband in Tetreault’s possession or in a vehicle, apparently belong to him.
Wardens recovered 10 firearms that they said were illegally possessed; as well as several packages of deer meat, turkey meat, turkey mounts and several tree stands that might have been connected to thefts from private property. A follow up search of a vehicle yielded two more firearms as well drug paraphernalia and suspected methamphetamine.
Police took Tetreault into custody during the execution of the search warrant and transported him to the New Haven state police barracks and eventually to the Northwest State Correctional Facility in St. Albans, where he was lodged under a $5,000 bond.
