Vergennes Police Log: Drugstore employee finds missing wallet

VERGENNES — Vergennes police would be happy to return a billfold with about $15 in it to its owner, assuming the owner contacts the department at 802-877-2201 and properly describes the billfold.

Police said an employee of Kinney Drug Store found the billfold on Jan. 11 and turned it over to them.

In a mostly quiet week between Jan. 10 and 19, police conducted two directed patrols, ticketed two cars parked overnight on city streets in violation of the city’s winter ban, helped one driver get into a locked vehicle, performed two VIN inspections, responded to two unfounded 911 calls, and also:

On Jan. 13, responded along with the Vergennes Area Rescue Squad to help a suicidal and inebriated woman at a Walker Avenue residence; VARS took her to Porter Hospital.

On Jan. 14, helped Vermont State Police by responding to a one-car accident on Route 7 in New Haven.

On Jan. 15, searched inside and outside a West Main Street residence for a reported intruder. A woman said she remained in bed and pretended to be asleep while a man spent an hour in a bathroom in her home apparently performing plumbing work. Police said they found no evidence of footprints inside or outside in the snow, or other indications of an intruder.
