    BURLINGTON ó Authorities say a man who alerted police to a methamphetamine operation in Vermont in 2010 and then disappeared for two years has been arraigned in the case.

    Robert R. Provost Jr. pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to manufacture narcotics in federal court in Burlington on Thursday.

    The Burlington Free Press reported that Provost has been living in Ocala, Fla., the last two years and was working as an installer for a cable company when he was apprehended by police on a Vermont arrest warrant last month.

    Authorities say he is the last of seven people to face charges in connection with a meth manufacturing operation that was run out of St. Albans in 2009 and 2010.

    Two of the seven are in prison.
