    WESTMINSTER — A North Walpole, N.H. woman was charged in a series of burglaries, and a warrant for another arrest has been requested by Vermont State Police.

    Betty Bashaw, 47, allegedly helped Jacob Mcallister, 21, of Westminster break into Kenneth Beebe Plumbing and Heating in Westminster between Jan. 27 and Jan. 31.

    Bashaw faces a single burglary charge for the break-ins, police said.

    Trooper Brian Berry said the pair stole brass fittings, a copper rod and a yellow Fluke electrical tester.

    Mcallister confessed to the three break-ins, but he has not been charged because he is being held for unrelated drug charges in Greenfield, Mass.

    Berry said Mcallister and Bashaw stole the items to support their heroin addictions.

    Bashaw and Mcallister will be arraigned at criminal court in Brattleboro on a later date.
