Two detained following burglary in Rutland Town

On Aug. 13, at 2:56 a.m., troopers from the Vermont state police – Rutland Barracks were notified of a glass breakage, cash register and cooler motion alarm at the Mac’s Convenience Store, located on Business Route 4, in the Town of Rutland.

The Rutland City Police Dept. arrived on scene shortly after the alarm was reported and located two female subjects walking in the area of the train tracks behind the store. The females were detained and identified as Tonia L. Webster and Ashleigh N. Rounds.

Troopers later viewed store video showing a subject wearing the same outfit as Webster in the store taking items and leaving with the same bag that Webster was in possession of when she was located after the incident. The video showed the subject taking items from the store that coincided with items found in Webster’s bag.  Webster was later taken into custody and transported to the State Police Barracks in Rutland Town. While Rounds was detained, it was also discovered that she had an active warrant for her arrest, and she was also transported to the state Police Barracks.

Webster was later released with a citation to appear in Vermont Superior Court, Rutland Criminal Division, on Sept. 21 to answer to the charge of burglary.
