Vermont State Police Log for May 9

ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont State Police (VSP) operating out of the New Haven barracks had a relatively light week in terms of the number of official actions they reported.

On April 30, five troopers from the VSP’s New Haven barracks conducted a saturation patrol on Route 7 in New Haven to enforce and promote traffic safety laws. The patrol took place between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m.

Troopers made 23 traffic stops, issued 15 traffic tickets, wrote 22 warnings and towed two vehicles.

State police remind all motorists to drive responsibility, turn to a sober driver when necessary, leave a safe distance between vehicles, plan ahead, put their phones down and ensure their vehicles are in good working order.

Also on April 30, state police cited Heather M. Dragon, 49, of Colchester, for possession of cocaine. The citation stemmed from a Feb. 23 incident in which a trooper found a vehicle that has allegedly been driven erratically in the Auto Creek parking lot off Route 7 in Ferrisburgh. Police identified Dragon as one of the passengers in the vehicle, and a substance found in her possession turned out to be cocaine, according to police. Her hearing at Addison County District Court, Criminal Division, is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 21.

Two incidents involving violence or threats of violence occurred more recently.

On May 5, troopers received a call around 8:30 p.m. notifying them of a fight in progress on Fay Road in Goshen. Following their investigation, state police cited Cody E. Balch, 33, of Warren, for simple assault.

Then, on May 6, at around 8 p.m., troopers responded to a report of an altercation at a Lake Dunmore Road home in Leicester. Police allege Marlene L. Hutchins, 63, of Leicester, had been in possession of a deadly weapon that she had allegedly used to threaten a family member. Police said Hutchins was taken into custody and taken to the New Haven barracks, where she was cited for first degree aggravated domestic assault.
