Vermont State Police Log for Sept. 8

ADDISON COUNTY — People being unkind to others was the theme of Vermont State Police activity in the past week.

Troopers got a report on Sept. 2 at around 8 p.m., that John Gargano, 66, of Monkton had violated a stalking order and was trespassing inside a vacant home on North Camp Road in Monkton. Police went to the vacant home and called for Gargano to come out, but he refused. Troopers got a search warrant and returned to the home, went in, and arrested Gargano. Police cited Gargano for violation of a stalking order and unlawful trespass.

Then, on Sept. 4 at 3:41 a.m., troopers logged a report of a family fight at a Lake Street home in West Addison. Police reported that Logan Loftus, 21, of Middlebury had punched a household member, fracturing their jaw. Troopers tracked Loftus down the next day, took him to the state police barracks in New Haven and cited him for first-degree aggravated domestic assault.

Meanwhile, a fire at a home just north of Leicester Four Corners on Sunday, Sept. 4, at around 11 p.m. prompted state police to close traffic in both directions on Route 7 between Maple Street and Fern Lake Road. The road remained closed until around 1:15 a.m. on Monday. State police were called to the scene but didn’t respond before deadline to a request for information on the status of their investigation.
