Fall Hiker Safety

STATE OF VERMONT

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

VERMONT STATE POLICE

 

PRESS RELEASE

HIKER SAFETY

 

September 27, 2016 / Waterbury VT - As summer departs and the weather cools this Fall, the Vermont State Police and Department of Public Safety would like to remind those heading out onto Vermont's hiking trails of the ever changing conditions a hiker may encounter this time of year, especially at higher elevations.  As you follow trails into the mountains, perhaps for a better view of Vermont’s spectacular foliage, you can find yourself hiking in cold conditions despite warmer weather at the trailhead. Fall rain at lower elevations can turn into an all-too-familiar wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain in the hills. Conditions on the trails above can be much colder and windy than below, allowing for potential hypothermia in individuals who are unprepared.

 

If hiking at higher elevations, it's important that hikers now prepare for potential winter-like conditions. Waterproof boots (not sneakers) with traction devices, extra layers of warm clothes, a headlamp, map and compass may become necessary for a safe and successful hike. Consider turning around if you are not properly equipped or if travel and route finding becomes difficult.

 

Neil Van Dyke, Search and Rescue Coordinator for the Vermont Dept. of Public Safety reports that there were several search and rescue incidents last fall involving hikers who were not properly prepared for the conditions they found at higher elevations.  Hikers should get an early start and allow plenty of time, as the days are getting shorter.  Last weekend two hikers called for assistance near Underhill State Park when they were caught by darkness and could not continue as they had not brought headlamps.

 

Officials from the Vermont State Police and Department of Public Safety encourage you to stay safe while enjoying the fall hiking season.  Be careful as you climb higher into the mountains with less available daylight hours and where winter-like conditions could exist.

CITY, STATE OF RESIDENCE:  Derby, Vt

 

SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:  On 09/21/2016 Ronald Griffin reported a burglary into his

camp located at 264 Beach Rd. in Averill. On this date Sgt. Smith met with

Griffin at his camp. Upon initial investigation it was determined that several

unknown subjects had broken into his camp and were possibly still using it.

There were some personal items in the camp that belonged to the subjects, there

was still fire in the wood stove and food left around the kitchen. There was

also evidence present that marijuana was being used and possibly processed in

the camp. The decision was made to leave the camp as it was found for the night.

 

US Border Patrol was contacted concerning the camp break in. The plan was for

agents from Borer Patrol along with this Trooper to conduct surveillance on the

camp early the next morning in hopes of identifying anyone at the camp. On

09/22/2016 two agents and myself walked into the camp and located a vehicle in

the driveway. After conferring with the owner and learning he was not familiar

with the vehicle owner, the course of action was to wait for the subjects to

leave and stop them on the road. As time passed and no one was exiting the camp,

the decision was made for Border patrol and State Police to surround the camp

and order everyone out. After several attempts of using a police siren three

male subjects exited the camp. All three were taken into custody and transported

to the Border Patrol office in Canaan for processing.

 

All three subjects were subsequently charged with burglary, larceny and

possession of marijuana. There was a large quantity of marijuana seized from the

camp along with more from the vehicle being used by the male subjects. The

vehicle was seized as evidence and secured at the border patrol station.

 

This was a perfect example of interagency cooperation with US border Patrol and

the State Police. Border Patrol Agents were instrumental in securing the

perimeter around the camp as well as processing the scene. All three subjects

were transported to the Border Patrol station where they were processed and

cited into court.
