Vergennes Police Log for May 16

VERGENNES — Vergennes police backed up Vermont State Police on Sunday, May 12, in a break-in at a Lake Street home in Panton that police said followed a car accident. 

According to Vergennes police, homeowners returned to their property to find a broken window and a woman sleeping in their house. Police said her vehicle apparently went off the road nearby. VSP have jurisdiction in the case, and troopers cites the woman found at the house — 40-year-old Amanda Wildasin of Vergennes — for burglary and unlawful mischief.

Also between May 6 and 12, Vergennes police conducted 14 patrols by cruiser and four on foot, 12 traffic stops and two VIN inspections; processed nine pre-employment fingerprint requests; and:

On May 7:

• Referred to Essex police a request from a New Hampshire agency to serve a relief-from-abuse order. Police said the person in question had moved away from Vergennes.

• Took a complaint from the Comfort Hill kennel that a drone flying over the property was disturbing dogs there.

On May 8:

• Went to Valley Vista at 1 Alden Place to handle a complaint of a client departing the rehab facility acting aggressively, but police found no problem.

• Handled a case in which a loose dog bit another dog and its owner walking on Main Street. Actions on this case are likely.

• Called a taxi for a homeless individual who came to the station seeking a ride to Burlington.

On May 9:

• Called the owner of a vehicle with a trailer following a complaint that it was routinely parked blocking a sidewalk in the Bowman Road area. 

• Took an unfounded report that a person was walking dangerously in the middle of a road; police said it was a dead end. 

• Responded to a family dispute on First Street. Police said a resident asked that his son, who was under the influence of alcohol, be removed from the home. The Addison County Sheriff’s Department took the son to the Charter House in Middlebury.

On May 10:

• Moved a utility line — a TV cable — that had fallen onto South Water Street. 

• Talked to a man who said he had a fight with his girlfriend and was worried about retrieving belongings the next day. Police advised him to be calm and polite.
