VERGENNES — Vergennes police received an Oct. 11 theft complaint from a Battery Hill resident alleging someone entered a home and made off with $400 from a child’s piggy bank, an amount of marijuana, and prescription drugs, including some of a narcotic nature.

Police noted there were no signs of forced entry, and said the incident remains under investigation.
