MIDDLEBURY — State and local police officials offered few details on the reasons behind a stepped-up security presence at Gov. James Douglas’s property off South Munger Street late last week.
Neighbors and passersby noted, at one point on Thursday, three Vermont State Police cruisers and one Middlebury police vehicle near the governor’s home.
Sgt. Tara Thomas, spokeswoman for the VSP, said the security crackdown was related to recent threats made to governors throughout the nation.
