Vermont State Police Log for Apr. 14

ADDISON COUNTY — April 9 was a bad day for Brian Sheldon. The 41-year-old Middlebury resident was cited twice by Vermont State Police in two separate incidents that Saturday.

In the first, troopers at 10:38 a.m. responded to a report of a citizen dispute on Spaulding Road in Panton. During the course of the investigation, police said they learned that Sheldon had trespassed onto property that he had been ordered to stay away from. State police cited Sheldon for violating the conditions of his release, driving with a criminally suspended Vermont license and unlawful trespassing. He was lodged at the Marble Valley Regional Correctional Facility with bail set at $200.

That same day at an unspecified time, Vermont State Police were notified of a hit-and-run motor vehicle incident in Shoreham. The caller said the vehicle damaged a pasture fence off Route 22A. Based on vehicular evidence left at the scene, troopers determined Sheldon was driving the vehicle that damaged the fence.

Because they said Sheldon didn’t abide by his duty to stop and failed to provide his name and other necessary documents to the property owner, police cited Sheldon for leaving the scene of an accident.

In a separate incident, Vermont State Police, on April 11 just before midnight, looked into a report of a two-vehicle crash on Route 22A in Addison. No injuries or hazards were reported and both vehicles were operable. Before police got to the scene, one of the drivers had left the area.

Troopers found that driver, —identified as Julia Coffey, 54 — at her home in Addison. Police determined Coffey was under the influence of intoxicants. They took her into custody without incident, took her to the New Haven barracks for processing, and released her to a sober party with a citation for refusing to take a driving under the influence test.
