Vergennes Police Log for Apr. 4

VERGENNES — Vergennes police between March 25 and 31 dealt with families having domestic issues, helped Vermont State Police evaluate a driver suspected of driving under the influence of drugs, handled two dog problems, and followed up on a report of a man making a woman feel uncomfortable.

Police during that week conducted 12 cruiser patrols and one on foot and 14 traffics stops, processed seven pre-employment fingerprint requests, and:

On March 25:

• Were told a man acting strangely on First Street had jumped out in front of a moving car. Police said they are not sure who the person was.

• Started looking into a case of a person who was out for a walk with his dog and was bitten while trying to break up a fight between his and another dog, which had gotten loose from its owners while it was being walked. 

On March 26:

• At the request of a medical office stayed nearby when a potentially problematic patient had an appointment.

• Responded to a report of a loose dog near Vergennes Union Elementary School, but found nothing.

• Went to Meigs Road after a report of a pickup truck being driven recklessly. Police spoke to a mechanic who had just worked on the truck and said he believed the owner was just testing it out; he told police he would speak to the truck owner.

• Reached out to a man that a woman reported had made her uncomfortable by following her. Police said she told the man to stop, and they left a message reinforcing that point. 

On March 27:

• Dealt with a minor two-car accident on Church Street.

• Handled two reports of truancy.

On March 28:

• Conducted a pre-employment background check.

• Evaluated, for state police, a driver suspected of operating under the influence of drugs. A city Drug Recognition Expert determined a medical condition, not illegal drug use, was the issue, according to police.

On March 30 took a report that a woman who lived with a caretaker had wandered off; police learned she returned on her own.

On March 31:

• Responded to a Hillside Drive apartment and calmed a juvenile female who police reported was acting out. 

• Spoke to a woman in the process of separating from her partner. Police said she alleged he had taken her car without permission, among other issues, and they advised her how to obtain a restraining order.
