Vergennes Police Log: Allegation follows recovery of car

VERGENNES — Vergennes police last week dealt with a case of a stolen car and an allegation of a sexual assault, both involving a former couple.  

Earlier in November, a city resident told Vergennes police he’d let his ex-girlfriend use his car, but she was refusing to return it. On Nov. 15, he informed police she’d still not returned the vehicle, and police thenagreed to report the car as stolen.

On Nov. 19, South Burlington police pulled the vehicle over for a traffic infraction, and impounded it when they learned it’d been reported stolen. Vergennes police said the city resident was then able to recover the car.

Later on Nov. 19, Vergennes police said the woman involved called them and alleged the man had sexually assaulted her while they were still living together. Vergennes police this week said the allegation remains under investigation. 

In other action between Nov. 14 and 20, Vergennes police conducted six traffic stops, two directed patrols and two VIN inspections; fingerprinted four job applicants; responded to two accidental false alarms and a 911 call caused by a malfunction; and also: 

On Nov. 16, responded to a minor two-car accident on Depot Street.

On Nov. 17, on behalf of a resident and a game warden, looked for an injured raccoon on the side of Macdonough Drive, but couldn’t find it.

• During a traffic stop, cited Dillon Hunt, 25, of Cornwall into court on an outstanding warrant from Washington County for failure to appear.
