Vermont State Police Log for Dec. 8
ADDISON COUNTY — At around 6:30 p.m. this past Thursday, Dec. 1, a Vermont State Police trooper from the New Haven barracks was monitoring traffic on Route 17 near Town Hill Road in New Haven when he saw a vehicle traveling at 100 mph in a 45-mph zone.
The trooper flipped on his blue lights and pulled the vehicle over. He identified the driver as Timothy Gebo, 31, of Vergennes. The officer cited Gebo for negligent driving and excessive speed, charges he’s due to answer in Addison Superior Court, criminal division, on Jan. 16. Gebo faces a possible fine of $806 and eight points on his insurance.
In last week’s state police log, we reported that troopers had identified a suspect in the Nov. 26 theft of cash from a farmstand in Leicester. Then this past Friday, state police said the suspect — identified as Irving Rose, 42, of Salisbury — came to the New Haven barracks, where police cited him for petit larceny in the case. He’s due to answer to the charge in Addison Superior Court, criminal division, on Jan. 23.
State police thanked the public for its assistance in this investigation.
Meanwhile, state police last week alerted motorists about difficult road conditions.
On the afternoon of Nov. 30, police reported a downed tree that was blocking the northbound lane of Route 17 in Starksboro, near Gore Road. Police urged drivers to seek alternate routes until the tree was removed.
That night at around 11:30 p.m., police warned drivers that firefighters were battling a structure fire on Old Hollow Road in North Ferrisburgh and suggested they seek alternate routes. That fire, which struck a historic mill on Lewis Creek, was extinguished by 3 a.m. and the road was fully open by 6 a.m. on Dec. 1 (see story on the fire in A section), police said.
