SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

On 5/20/2018, a VSP-Derby Trooper took a report of a dispute over ownership of a dog.  It was reported the complainant, Munn, had repossessed a dog over which there was some contractual dispute.  There were allegations that a trespass had occurred during said repossession.  The dispute over ownership and payment then continued over the subsequent weeks.

 

Further investigation revealed Munn had provided Troopers with two false statements as well as provided altered evidence to deflect the course of the investigation away from her.  She was issued a criminal citation to appear in the Orleans District Court on 7/31/18.  The investigation into the circumstances surrounding her possession of the dog continues.
