Vergennes Police Log: Plumbing equipment is stolen, or possibly not

VERGENNES — Vergennes police took advantage of a mostly quiet week between June 10 and 16 to devote time to keeping city roads safe: City police stopped 20 vehicles for a variety of moving violations during those seven days. Typically about half those stops result in tickets, police say, while the remaining drivers receive written or verbal warnings. 

During that week, Vergennes police also conducted 11 patrols in cruisers and two on foot, a property watch, and a VIN inspection; processed 10 fingerprint requests, responded to a false alarm; and:

On June 10:

• Following a neighbor’s complaint told a person not to park a vehicle on the sidewalk in the Bowman Road area.

• Backed up Vermont State Police at a family dispute at Button Bay State Park. 

• Began looking into a complaint from a mother that a father was violating a court order by contacting their daughter through social media. 

• Took a report that around $1,000 of plumbing equipment was stolen from a worksite during a lunch break. Police were later told a third party said the person who took the equipment regretted it and would return it this week. 

On June 12:

• Served a modification of a relief-from-abuse order to a city resident.
