Man caught in Shoreham after eluding troopers

Vermont State Police learned that fugitive Travis J. Desautels, age 28, was living at a residence on Route 22A in Shoreham.

On June 11, troopers went to the residence to arrest Desautels; he fled out a backdoor and ran and hid in the woods.

On June 16, Desautels was reported at the residence, but again fled into the woods when troopers approached.

On June 17, troopers responded to the residence and took Desautels into custody as he tried to escape. He was transported to the Addison County Sheriff's Department and then to Addison County District Court for a hearing. He was then transported to the Correctional Center in Rutland.

Desaultels was arrested on two outstanding arrest warrants: Addison County probation violation on domestic assault charge-hold without bail and a Rutland County charge of leaving the scene of an accident-bail was set at $5,000.

As a result of this incident, Desautels is also facing three counts of resisting arrest.
