ADDISON COUNTY — An 80-year-old Lincoln man on Tuesday pleaded innocent to a felony charge of possession of child pornography following a raid of his home by the Vermont State Police and other law enforcement agencies.

At around noon on Monday, Oct. 9, state police troopers along with Bristol police and an agent from Homeland Security Investigations executed a search warrant at a Lincoln residence. While searching a bedroom belonging to Donald H. Noble, authorities found a television left on with a movie playing, but paused.

Police said the movie displayed child pornography, so they seized the DVD along with over 100 more DVDs for further analysis of related offenses.

Troopers took Noble into custody, transported him to the state police barracks in New Haven for processing, cited him and released him. Noble entered his pleas to the child pornography charge in Addison Superior Court, criminal division, the next day.

In other recent activity, Vermont State Police announced last Thursday that area law enforcement agencies will conduct one or more sobriety checkpoints in Addison County this month. This will be done in an effort to monitor the flow of traffic along Vermont’s highways in the interest of detecting and arresting people under the influence of alcohol or any drug that has impaired their driving.

The next day, Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. to noon troopers from the New Haven barracks conducted a SEE (Safe Eyes Everywhere) distracted driving detail in Addison County. State police stopped seven vehicles for various motor vehicle violations to include six for cellphone use. During one stop an operator was issued a ticket for possession of marijuana. Police did not immediately provide details about who was stopped or where.

Separately, on Oct. 6 police began investigating a report of a burglary at a Route 7 home in Leicester. State police said someone had forced entry earlier that day and stole an assortment of jewelry was including an engagement ring with solitaire diamonds, a pearl ring and numerous bracelets. Anybody with any information on this crime is asked to contact the Vermont State Police at 802-388-4919.

Meanwhile, after investigation, state police on Oct. 8 said they had cited Therran Leggett, 18, of Bridport for domestic assault. A victim of domestic assault reported to state police that Leggett had assaulted them multiple times this past April. Police said their investigation showed that Leggett caused physical harm to a household member so troopers arrested him and processed, fingerprinted and photographed him at the state police barracks in New Haven. Leggett was released with a citation to answer the charge Dec. 4 in Addison Superior Court, criminal division.
