On Sept. 2 shortly before 1 a.m. the Vermont State Police were dispatched to East Arlington Road within the Town of Arlington for a report of someone breaking into vehicles. The complainant, Jenel Prescott, 26, of East Arlington Road reported that her boyfriend, Seth Butler, 28, noticed a male going through her vehicle. Butler went outside and pulled the male, later identified as Brett Weber out of Prescott's vehicle and held him on the ground until state police officers arrived and took Weber into custody.
Weber admitted to officers he had been stealing things from unlocked vehicles on East Arlington Road. Officers were able to locate several victims who identified property in Weber's possession as items stolen from their vehicles.
Weber was transported to the Shaftsbury Barracks and processed. In addition to the two counts of petit larceny and minor in possession of alcohol, more charges could be filed as more victims are identified.
It is believed there were more vehicles on East Arlington Road that were broken into, but the owners have not report the incidents or know the items that were taken.
Weber was released to Bennington County Probation and Parole and transported to Marble Valley Correctional Center for violation of his probation.
