Vergennes Police Log for Nov. 17

VERGENNES — Vergennes police continue to be called by the Valley Vista substance use disorder facility as it discharges problematic clients who are unable to successfully complete their rehabilitation programs. Police said the facility at 1 Alden Place does not have transportation or housing protocols for its discharged clients.

On Nov. 11, police said they spent about five hours trying, but failing, to find housing and/or transportation for one client who was asked to leave her court-ordered stay at Valley Vista after an argument with her roommate. Eventually, police said they drove her to Rutland, her hometown, and put her in contact with her probation officer with an order to report to court on Monday.

On Nov. 9, police responded to Valley Vista when a client was refusing to leave, and took her to the John Graham Shelter.

In other action between Nov. 7 and 13 city police conducted two patrols on foot and three by cruiser, performed four traffic stops, responded to a false alarm, fingerprinted four job applicants, dealt with three false 911 calls from the same number caused by a malfunction, and also:

On Nov. 9:

• On behalf of the Department for Children and Families checked the welfare of a child in a Hillside Drive apartment.

• Saw an unattended fire on a Hillside Drive apartment porch and worked to put it out, and also called the fire department because of the danger embers might ignite fallen leaves nearby.

On Nov. 11 cited Eric Alger, 67, of Salisbury into court for driving with a criminally suspended license.

On Nov. 12:

• Took a report that packages had been stolen from outside a Hillside Drive apartment.

• Issued a no-trespass order to a former Shaw’s Supermarket employee on behalf of store management.
