SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

 

On 09/15/2020 at approximately 2343 hours, Troopers observed a vehicle traveling south bound on U.S. Route 7 in the Town of Ferrisburgh at a high rate of speed and pass another vehicle unsafely. Upon activation of the RADAR device, the vehicle was determined to be traveling 77 MPH in a posted 50 MPH zone. A traffic stop was initiated, and the vehicle subsequently led Troopers on a pursuit reaching speeds of over 120 MPH.

 

The vehicle came to a stop at Green Mountain Pet & Tack Supply in the Town of Ferrisburgh, and the operator subsequently led Troopers on a foot pursuit into the woods. A K-9 track was conducted but the operator was not located at this time. The vehicle sustained no damage and several containers of alcohol were located within the vehicle.

 

This case remains under active investigation. Anybody with information regarding this incident is strongly encouraged to contact the New Haven Barracks.

 

Troopers were assisted on scene by members of the Vergennes Police Department.
