Nov. 14

- On Sept. 29, the Springfield Police Department began an investigation into a package of jewelry that was delivered to the wrong address. The package was reported delivered by mistake to Megan Prue, 26, of Bellows Falls. Prue told police she had dropped the package off at the Springfield Post Office, but detectives were unable to find proof that she did so. Prue eventually admitted to having two of the four pieces of jewelry in her possession, and admitted to providing the police with misleading information. Prue was offered the opportunity to avoid a larceny charge by returning the other two pieces of jewelry; however, she allegedly claimed that she did not possess the two missing pieces of jewelry. One missing piece of jewelry is valued at hundreds of dollars, and the other is valued in the thousands of dollars. Anyone who has information regarding the whereabouts of the missing jewelry is asked to contact Sergeant Gregory Molgano at 802-885-2113. Prue was cited with grand larceny and providing false information to a law enforcement officer.
