Police respond to attempted larceny from night deposit box

Tractor rammed ATM, caused moderate damage

RUTLAND—On Wednesday, Nov. 4, at about 2:30 a.m. members of the Fair Haven Rescue Squad, who were returning from the Rutland Regional Medical Center hospital, contacted the Vermont State Police when they observed an attempted theft in progress at the Green Mountain Credit Union, located at 3141 Cold River Road in Rutland Town.

Rescue members along with another citizen reported that a male operating a tractor was ramming into the night deposit box located on the north side of the credit union. Witnesses reported the male left the scene on the tractor, traveling east on Cold River Road, then into the Adele Stanley apartment complex. As troopers arrived, they saw a male flee from the tractor into the woods. The tractor continued to travel through the lawn behind the apartments and stopped when it struck a large tree, only feet from another residential building.

With the assistance of the Rutland City Police Department, a containment perimeter was established in the area and a canine track was conducted. After an extensive search, the suspect was not located. The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5’8” tall, wearing a light colored hooded sweatshirt and light colored pants.

The night deposit box and credit union building were moderately damaged during this attempted theft.

The Vermont State Police are continuing to investigate this incident. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Vermont State Police, 802-773-9101. Information can also be submitted anonymously online at www.vtips.info or text “CRIMES” (274637) to Keyword: VTIPS.
