Failure to register
Theresa Lynn Plante, 27, formerly of Isle La Motte, was cited on Sept. 27 on a charge of failure to update the state’s sex offender registry after moving to Williston, according to police. Plante, who has also used the aliases Theresa Barron and Theresa Neale, set up a large beige-colored camper on a plot of empty land on Route 2—across from a local preschool at the bottom of Monastery Hill—and did not notify the state of her whereabouts as required by Vermont law, according to police.
According to the state’s sex offender registry website, Plante was convicted in Vermont of sexual assault on a 16-year-old in 2008 and has a probation officer in St. Albans. She is listed as “not high risk,” the site notes.
Police told the Observer she “packed up and moved out” on Tuesday, but was scheduled to be arraigned in court on Thursday. Police did not know where she had moved as of press time, but state law requires that she notify the state of her new address within three days of moving.
Christina M. Quintin, 29, of Essex was cited on charges of retail theft from Wal-Mart and violating conditions of release on Sept. 27. No other information was released. She was cited to appear in court.
Unknown “suspects” tipped over a large farm stand “pumpkin display” on Sept. 29, according to police reports. The pumpkin was actually a “white wrapped hay bale” painted orange and weighed 1,000 pounds, according to the report. Several people would have had to work together to tip it over, the report notes. No other information was released.
