Police widen Brandon-area vandalism probe

BRANDON - The Vermont State Police and Brandon Police Department responded to more than 30 related vandalism cases in northern Rutland and southern Addison counties during Halloween weekend.

The incidents involved the perpetrators throwing large rocks at homes and cars from a moving vehicle, during the late night hours of Oct. 30 ("Cabbage Night") through Nov. 4.

The damage ranged from smashed car windows and severely dented body panels to home siding being damaged as a result of the rocks being thrown. An estimated $15,000 in total damages occurred amongst all of the reported incidents. A list of suspects were developed and resulted in the confessions and arrests of several area juveniles.

The incidents are still being investigated and there are more possible arrests forthcoming.

Anyone that has information is asked to contact either the Vermont State Police in New Haven (802-388-4919) or the Brandon Police Department (802-247-0222).
