New Hampshire police are looking for the suspect in a convenience store armed robbery. Police say the suspect hit the Circle K in Littleton just after 5 -- these are surveillance pictures of him demanding money from the clerk. He didn't get any from the clerk though, and took off running. The suspect is described as 5-foot-6, with a medium build -- and light brown or hazel eyes. He was wearing a ski mask -- and police say he had a gun. If you have any information -- call Littleton Police.
South Burlington police say they arrested a credit card thief -- that the public helped to catch. Monday we showed you this surveillance photo -- of a man wanted for illegally using someone else's lost credit and debit cards -- at multiple spots in South Burlington and Winooski. Thanks to tips -- Police were able to identify and arrest 37-year-old Shawn Provost. He was charged with identity theft. The Winooski man is due in court next month.
A suspected drunk driver gave a Burlington liquor store owner a serious case of dejavu. Police were called to Merola's market on North Ave around 1:00 Tuesday morning after a truck crashed into the building. The driver -- 40-year-old Kennet Dall -- was cited for DUI. The building is dealing with structural damage and water problems -- because the truck smashed into the store's water heater.
((Jason Beaudoin/Merola's Market: "My worker that lives down the street called me and said hop in my truck, get down here, another truck ran into your store. So I came down and found the truck still in my store.")) This isn't the first time someone has hit the store. Back in 2010 A drunk driver plowed into the other side of the store -- doing much more damage.
A holiday tradition is back -- rolling up and down streets across Vermont. SD Ireland Companies has kicked off it's annual Christmas truck season. The company decorates three cement trucks with 25-thousand lights a piece that will travel around the state this month. It takes crews two weeks to string up each truck with thousands of dollars worth of lights. Drivers say there are additional challenges once the giant glowing trucks hit the road.
(45:53:00) ((Kim Ireland/SD Ireland "the biggest challenge is the fenders, the big pieces of slop sometime short out the lights")) (1:04:02:06) ((Kyle Carpenter/Driver "i got pulled over by burlington pd one of my white lights was out")) We have a link to the truck's schedule on our info center at wcax dot com.
