VERGENNES — Vergennes police on July 31 arrested a city man for the second time in less than a week on larceny charges, and this time he was jailed.
Police said Tyler Flynn, 21, of Vergennes was lodged at the Chittenden County Correctional Center for lack of $10,000 cash bail after allegedly stealing a laptop computer from a second street home and selling it to a Burlington store.
Flynn, who five days before was cited for stealing copper wire and then released with conditions, was cited for petit larceny and violating the conditions of his earlier release.
Also last week, Vergennes police cited Rory H. Thompson, 31, of Vergennes on three counts of forging checks that he had allegedly stolen from his parents, one count of petit larceny for the alleged theft of a box of checks, and one count of identity theft, for applying for and receiving a credit card in his father’s name. Police said additional charges involving others are possible in this case.
