Pair deny stealing snowmobileMarch 01,2013Men deny
Two men denied charges this week of stealing a snowmobile from a dealership in Clarendon.
Jeremy C. Chadburn, 28, of Shrewsbury and Kelley E. Staples, 21, of Danby, pleaded innocent in Rutland criminal court to a felony charge each of grand larceny.
Vermont State Police say Staples was seen on video stealing a 2002 Polaris XCSP snowmobile from Dan Turco and Sons on North Shrewsbury Road last month.
In an interview with Staples, he allegedly admitted to stealing the $2,000 snowmobile, but said he did it as a favor for Chadburn who agreed to pay him $600 if he helped to steal and tow the machine away, according to police.
Chadburn denied any involvement in the crime. He told police that he traded Staples a motorcycle for the snowmobile and promptly returned it when the owner of the machine came to his home looking for it three days after it was stolen.MORE IN This Just InMONTPELIER — With just days to go before the Democratic primaries, and a sitting governor and...
