Vergennes Police Log: City resident reports missing bottles

VERGENNES — A West Street resident reported to Vergennes police on Jan. 19 that between $75 and $120 worth of redeemable bottles had been stolen from a shed on his property during the night before. 

The resident told police he saves bottles until he has enough to make a large donation to the city’s Boy Scout troop. 

City police theorized someone must have used a pickup truck in the theft — $100 worth of 5-cent redeemable containers equals 2,000 bottles and cans. 

Vergennes police also focused on traffic control between Jan. 18 and 24, stopping 25 vehicles during their patrols. Police said about half the drivers they stopped were warned and half were ticketed. 

During those seven days, city police also responded to a false alarm, fingerprinted four job applicants, conducted three patrols by cruiser and one on foot, and:

On Jan. 16, responded to a one-vehicle accident on First Street in which a car drove onto a lawn and damaged a private sign. 

On Jan. 17, issued warnings to owners of cars violating the city’s overnight winter ban on street parking.

On Jan. 18, fielded a complaint from a Main Street resident who said he was being harassed by phone by his caseworkers.

On Jan. 19:

• Warned car owners who were violating the city’s overnight winter ban on street parking.

• Calmed a domestic dispute between a mother and daughter at a West Main Street residence.
