Vergennes Police Log: Man cited for outstanding warrent, suspended license

VERGENNES — Vergennes police on June 25 issued four citations to a Panton man after stopping a vehicle he was driving on Panton Road because it lacked a front license plate and a valid inspection sticker. 

City police cited Nicholas Pecor on an outstanding warrant issued by a Rutland Court for driving with a suspended license, operating a vehicle without a registration, and driving without insurance. They released Pecor when he made bail.

In other action between June 24 and 30, Vergennes police conducted 15 patrols, 14 in cruisers and one on foot, and 16 traffic stops, including two commercial motor vehicle inspections; processed two fingerprint requests; were called out on two false alarms; and also:

On June 25:

• Took a report of a vehicle accident for insurance purposes.

• Went to Panton Road when told a couple were going door-to-door asking to use restrooms. Police learned they were kayakers, one of whom had a digestive issue, and offered advice. 

On June 26:

• Accepted a wallet found on Panton Road by a cyclist.

• Conducted a background investigation on a potential applicant for a department opening.

• Following an investigation, cited Dean Bushee Jr., 26, of Bristol, for driving with a suspended license and leaving the scene of a June 21 accident in the Maplefields parking lot off Main Street.  

On June 27:

• Responded along with Vergennes Area Rescue Squad and Vergennes Fire Department personnel to an accident with injuries on Main Street near city hall. Police said an elderly woman apparently failed to put her car in park — although the exact cause remains under investigation — and was struck by her own vehicle. VARS took her to the UVM Medical Center to be treated for serious injuries, police said. 

• At the station, questioned two Northlands Job Corps students who had been fighting and determined it was a mutual event without injuries and thus did not cite either for the incident. One student, however, was asked to leave the program, police said.

On June 28, looked into a complaint of a suspicious behavior on South Maple Street, but found no problem. 

On June 29:

• Took a phone message from an Otter Creek Mobile Home Park resident complaining that a neighbor was parking in front of his home. Police are looking into the complaint.

• Were alerted by phone that a window was open at the National Guard Armory on Monkton Road. Police alerted the Guard.

On June 30:

• Took a complaint that a Champlain Farms customer’s credit card had been overcharged for gas purchased there. Police on Monday were looking into the issue. 

• Took a phone call from a city business owner who was concerned a former employee was disgruntled and could cause a problem.
