Bristol Police Log for May 6
BRISTOL — Bristol police would like to thank everyone who brought unused medication to the police station for proper disposal during National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, April 24.
A reminder that Bristol police has a drop box in the station lobby, where residents can stop by anytime to dispose of their unused medication.
The drop box was made possible in part with the help of Jesse Brooks, Director of Prevention at the United Way of Addison County.
Between April 19 and 25 Bristol police completed 10 foot patrols, conducted four car patrols, and checked security at Mount Abraham Union High School seven times, at Bristol Elementary School five times, and at local businesses seven times.
Police also completed at least six fingerprint requests, helped one person get into their locked vehicle, responded to one burglar alarm that turned out to be false and facilitated the return of one loose dog.
The department also assisted Vermont State Police once.
In other recent activity, Bristol police:
• On April 19 contacted a person who’d been reported as suspicious and determined no action rose to the level of an offense.
• On April 20 investigated a report of a vehicle fire and determined the engine was smoking because of a mechanical issue but there was no fire.
• On April 20 responded to a report of an unlocked door at a closed business and contacted the owner, who secured the door.
• On April 20 investigated a motor vehicle complaint, located the vehicle and issued a warning to the driver.
• On April 21 responded to a report that a powerline was down, set out traffic cones and helped close the area until fire department officials arrived.
