RUTLAND COUNTY, Vt. (NEWS10) — On Thursday, Vermont State Police police out of Rutland notified the public that they are looking for two suspects. They released screenshots from surveillance footage of the incidents so the public can help identify the individuals in question.
The first incident, on Tuesday, involved separate burglaries that police believe were connected or committed by one individual.
