Vermont State Police Log for Jul. 14

ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police jailed an Orwell man without bail after he allegedly fired a gun at a person involved in a domestic assault.

Troopers were called to an Orwell home at around 5:21 p.m. on Sunday. After investigating they reported that Ronald Real, 48, had fired a gun in the direction of the victim, reportedly striking a vehicle the victim was driving. The victim fled the residence without being struck.

Detectives and troopers got a warrant to search the home and also located Real and arrested him.

They cited Real for attempted murder, 1st degree aggravated domestic assault and using a gun though he was not allowed to own one because of a previous violent crime. Police lodged Real at the Marble Valley Correctional Center.

Separately, on July 5 at 1:15 p.m., Vermont State Police looked into a one-car crash into a utility pole at 2938 Bristol Road in Monkton, near Hardscrabble Road. The driver and a passenger fled the scene. A witness told police that the people who fled the car, a 2018 Nissan Altima, included a woman in her mid to late 20s and a man in his mid to late 20s who was around 5 feet, 9 inches tall. A witness also said the man was wearing a white shirt, with blood on it that he shed after sustaining injuries.

State police along with Bristol police and sheriff’s deputies tried to locate the man and woman but were unsuccessful.

While investigating the crash, police received a report that a silver 2010 Subaru Forester (license plate KBM385) had been stolen from just a little ways away on Bristol Road. The owner of the stolen vehicle believed the thieves had made a left turn out of his driveway and drove north toward Hinesburg.

Police think the couple that crashed the Nissan Altima stole the Forester. Anybody with any information is encouraged to contact the Vermont State Police New Haven barracks at 802-388-4919.

Meanwhile, troopers:

  • On July 5 at a few minutes past midnight logged a report of a suspicious incident in Salisbury. Police investigated and then cited Marvin Morley, 59, of Ferrisburgh for unlawful restraint of his six passengers while providing them with a taxi ride. See full story in A section.
  • On July 6 at a minute before midnight got a report of a noise disturbance on Silver Street in Monkton. Troopers got to the property and noted a loud noise from the property of Mark Guillemette, 50, of Monkton. Police believe that there was a loud beeping noise coming from a heavy equipment machine on Guillemette’s property. They cited Guillemette with disorderly conduct and noise in the nighttime.
