Bristol police hunt for burglars
BRISTOL — Bristol police on Monday, Aug. 4, responded to a reported burglary at a Main Street home, near the intersection at Mountain Street. Police said they believe someone entered the home through a front window after removing the screen sometime between Aug. 3 at 5:30 p.m. and Aug. 4 at 8:30 a.m.
Police urge anyone with information about the crime to call them at 453-2533.
Separately this week, Bristol police on Tuesday, Aug. 5, arrested town resident Ryan Oscar Davis, 18, on suspicion of lying to law enforcement. Police responded to a West Street business at 1:30 that afternoon, where Davis said his car had been struck by another vehicle while parked.
Police reviewed surveillance footage of the parking lot, and found that Davis’ car was not in the lot when he said the accident occurred. Police said Davis later admitted he had caused the damage to his car by hitting a tree at a different location. Police released Davis with a citation to appear in Addison County Superior Court, criminal division, in Middlebury at a later date.
