VERGENNES — Vergennes police are investigating a couple of alleged thefts from Kinney Drug Store, in both cases reviewing video in hopes of identifying suspects. 

On July 4 police took a report that three days earlier a man had taken an alcoholic beverage into the store’s men’s room and drank it there.

First, at about 5 a.m. they responded to a complaint she was screaming on a Main Street sidewalk and carrying a knife, but not in a threatening manner. Police said they took her to the train station in Ferrisburgh. Soon afterward they were told she was refusing to leave a North Main Street business, and they picked her up and returned her to the train station.
