Seemingly dissatisfied with breaking the law in the state where he resides, a Massachusetts man was recently arrested by Vermont State Troopers for burglary. Maybe the fact that he already had a record in the Bay State prompted him to try his luck elsewhere.
According to a news release from the Vermont State Police (VSP), a Springfield man was arrested early Tuesday evening just before 10 p.m. in Berlin, Vermont, for trespassing and burglary.
VSP reports that they were informed that two people were in a house that they had been told not to be just before 10 p.m. on Tuesday evening August 16. Upon further investigation, state police discovered that the couple had entered the home without permission.
The two suspects, Joseph Llano, 23, of Springfield, MA, and Jennie Galway, 35, of Washington, VT, quickly fled the scene when troopers arrived, but both were arrested shortly after.
Both Llano and Galway were taken to the barracks in Berlin for treatment. Galway was released with a citation for unlawful trespassing and she is scheduled to appear in Washington County Superior Court in late September.
Llano meanwhile, was not so lucky. He was charged with unlawful trespass, burglary, resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance. He was arraigned Wednesday in Superior Court and is being held on $50,000 bond.
Apparently Llano was arrested in Massachusetts last year for armed robbery. To learn more about Vermont’s history, visit the Vermont State Police website here.
