On March 7, the Williston Police Department, Williston Fire Department, Vermont State Police and State HAZ MAT Team investigated a suspicious package with an unknown powder at the Vermont Health Connect office on Hurricane Lane. The building was evacuated and the Williston Police have concluded that the item mailed to the office was “non-harmful generic prescription medication,” according to police reports. Earlier tests conducted by the state’s HazMat team accurately identified the substance as a “binding agent within the medication,” police said. Police determined the substance was not “intentionally introduced into the envelope” and no charges will be filed.
On March 7, Vermont State Police responded to an alarm at the Simon’s Convenience Store at 2 Barber Rd. in St. George. Upon arrival, police were met by Hinesburg Police who had arrived to assist and discovered a door that appeared to be forced open. A search of the building found no one inside and an inventory by the store manager determined that nothing was missing. Upon review of the store surveillance system, it was confirmed that at least one person had made entry into the building. Fingerprints were obtained from the door and were sent to the state lab for analysis. Anyone with information should contact the Vermont State Police in Williston at 878-7111.
