Fugitive charged for break-in
By Gordon Dritschilo
Vermont State Police said they arrested a New Hampshire fugitive after he broke into a Rutland woman’s home.
Donald Robichaud Jr., aka Donald Robichard Jr., was held for lack of $25,000 and is expected to be extradited to New Hampshire some time after his arraignment, scheduled for today, on unlawful trespass charges, according to police.
Police said they responded to a complaint around 4 p.m. Monday afternoon that Robichaud was forcing his way into an occupied Simon Avenue home, and were told en route that Robichaud had gotten in through a bathroom window.
Upon arrival, police said, they were told Robichaud has run out the front door. He was then found hiding behind a post in the house’s basement, police said.
Police said they then learned Robichaud had a warrant for his arrest in New Hampshire for a parole violation and indictments on burglary and several forgery charges.
Robichaud was held at the Marble Valley Correctional Center and is scheduled to appear today in Rutland criminal court.
