-- On Dec. 18, the Brattleboro Police Department received a call from a person who was threatening to take his own life. When officers responded to the caller, he changed his name and location several times, sending police all over the downtown area. After a short investigation, police determined it was a hoax call and arrested Brian Moffitt, of Brattleboro, for providing false information to police. He was ordered to appear in court at a later date.


-- On Dec. 23, at approximately 3:10 p.m., the Vermont State Police responded to Route 30 near the D&K Store for the report of a hit-and-run accident. According to witnesses, a New Hampshire registered green sedan with a loud muffler struck an unoccupied Subaru Legacy before fleeing the scene in the direction of Townshend. A witness described the vehicle as being dirty and having a dent on the front bumper. It is likely that the vehicle also sustained damage to the passenger side rear bumper in this crash.

Anyone that may have witnessed this crash or may have information leading to the identity of the vehicle or the occupants is urged to contact the Vermont State Police in Brattleboro at 802-254-2382.
