Multiple charges

In mid-January, a group of friends bought BB guns and began driving around Williston, Essex, Colchester, Burlington, Winooski and South Burlington and smoking marijuana while shooting at street signs and the windows in parked cars, as well as at business windows along the roads on which they were driving, according to police reports.

One of the men brought a .22 rifle on one of the outings and wanted to shoot at a moving car “to see if it would blow up,” according to police. The other men took the rifle from him and locked it in the trunk, where it was recovered when two of the men were arrested by Williston police officer Matt Cohen, according to police reports.
