SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

On December 24th 2019 at 0049 hours, VSP Rutland Troopers were dispatched to a residence on Prospect Lane for a report of a possible home invasion. A resident had called 911 upon finding a strange male in their residence, who then fled in a vehicle. Troopers arrived and located a vehicle that had crashed in the area, with a male operator who matched the description given by the complainant. While speaking with the operator, Ryan, Troopers observed clues indicating impaired operation. Ryan was administered the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, where further clues were observed. Ryan was placed under arrest and transported to the Rutland State Police barracks for processing. Further investigation by Troopers at the scene determined that Ryan had entered an occupied residence through an unlocked door and had remained inside until being discovered by the homeowner.

 

Bail was set on Ryan in the amount of $1000 cash or surety bond, and Conditions of Release were imposed to include that he appear before the Rutland County Superior Court- Criminal Division on December 24th 2019 at 1100 hours to answer to the above charges.
