BRANDON — Bitter cold seemed to put a damper on activity in Brandon last week. Nevertheless, Brandon Police had several calls requiring their assistance.
The first came on Jan. 31, when a Rutland City resident reported concerns that his inheritance money was being stolen and wanted to meet with an officer on Supermarket Drive. The male was advised to get in contact with Rutland City Police to seek further assistance as the ongoing issue was occurring in Rutland City and not Brandon.
A vehicle unable to maintain its lane on Furnace Road was stopped on Feb. 1. Mark Decrisantis, 64, of Forest Dale was arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol. Decrisantis was later processed and then released on a citation to appear before the Rutland County Superior Court-Criminal Division on Feb. 21, for arraignment.
A missing persons report came in later in the day for a Bristol resident last seen at a doctor’s appointment in the Town of Brandon the day before. Police are involved in an ongoing investigation into the whereabouts of the individual in-question.
When police responded to a Feb. 3 report of a suspicious person allegedly trying to get into the Junction Store and Deli on Forest Dale Road, they that the suspicious person was in fact an employee leaving the business. Later in the day police were called to a two-car accident on Arnold District Road. One vehicle had passed another vehicle on the left as it was making a left-hand turn into a driveway. The vehicles received damage but no injuries were reported.
Police assisted with an ongoing marital and/or property dispute issue occurring on Grove Street on February 4. The matter was determined to be civil in-nature and not a police matter.
On Feb. 5 police received a report of orange traffic cones on Marble Street, causing a traffic hazard. Police immediately removed the cones from the roadway. At this time it is unknown who initially placed the cones in the roadway.
