On May 28, city police cited Matthew Randall, 25, of Essex Junction, for DUI after stopping his car for traveling 52 mph in a 40 mph zone. Police allege his blood-alcohol content tested at 0.102 percent at the Vergennes station. The legal limit for driving is 0.08 percent.
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police assisted a local man who was the target of a phone scam on May 30. Police said the man was told that he had won a Mercedes and $700,000 and all he had to do was send in a $500 money order to claim the prizes.
Authorities are again warning people not to share their private financial information with others promising something too good to be true.
