- On Jan. 6, Vermont State Police were notified of a vandalism and theft complaint from Route 112. Linwood Abbott, 59, of Halifax, called to report that the sign for his business was stolen and the structure that the sign was in was vandalized. Investigation revealed that a vehicle, most likely a pick-up truck, backed onto Abbott’s property and attached itself to the structure that the sign was located in. The structure was built to look like a wishing well with the sign attached across the top. It also had a stone surrounding and solar lights. The structure was ripped from the ground. A passerby noticed the roof of the structure and sign down the roadway early the next morning. When Abbott went to the location to recover the sign, it was gone. The wooden sign is almost 2-foot-by-3-foot. It is white with green letters. It contains "Abbott Glen" in the wording. Damage is estimated at a minimum of $4,000.
