Teen cited for failing to deliver wood

Vermont State Police cited a 16-year-old juvenile from Wells after the youth sold two cords of cut, dry firewood to an Arlington resident but only delivered one cord.

Troopers were called after the Arlington resident saw a Facebook Marketplace post offering firewood for sale. The investigation showed that the person and the juvenile agreed on two cords to be delivered Nov. 10-11. The juvenile delivered one cord but never delivered the second cord despite receiving payment for two cords.

The youth was issued a citation to appear in Bennington Unit Family Division court at 2 p.m. Jan. 10.

LONDONDERRY — A Londonderry man was charged with disorderly conduct after a driveway altercation between neighbors.

Vermont State Police said they were called to 80 Coburn Way in Londonderry on Nov. 26 where they met Robert A. Aubin who told police his neighbor, Barton Thomas Coburn was harassing him. Police said Aubin told them Coburn was threatening and scaring off snow plow companies that Aubin had hired to remove snow from his property and was preventing Aubin from accessing his residence by blocking his driveway with his vehicle.

The pair has been involved in civil litigation over the care and maintenance of the right of way that Coburn owns, according to police.

"This ongoing civil matter appears to be the primary cause of Coburn's recent actions," according to a VSP news release.

Police said Coburn met with them Dec. 10 where he was arrested and processed for disorderly conduct.

Corburn was later released with a criminal citation and scheduled to appear in Vermont Superior Court at 8 a.m. Jan. 29 to answer to the charges.
