Man accused of stealing Lottery ticketsOctober 09,2013BENNINGTON — A Manchester man who was arrested as part of a drug sweep in Bennington County last month was arraigned on new charges on Tuesday.
Daniel Reddan, 31, of Manchester, pleaded innocent in Bennington criminal court to two misdemeanor counts of petty larceny and one misdemeanor count each of possession of a stimulant drug and violating the conditions of his release from custody.
In an affidavit, Cpl. James Blanchard of the Manchester Police Department said police were called on Monday around 2:10 p.m. by the manager of the Rite Aid pharmacy on Main Street. The manager told police that she believed Reddan had been in the store Monday and Sunday and taken lottery tickets.
Blanchard said video surveillance footage from the store seemed to show Reddan reaching behind a counter and taking lottery tickets. The manager told Blanchard she believed about $75 in tickets had been taken.
Police were able to arrest Reddan when he went to a nearby convenience store whose employees were told Reddan might come in to try to turn in lottery tickets, Blanchard said.
At the store, Blanchard noticed blue fluid dripping from Reddan’s nostrils.
“I asked him why the inside of his nose was blue. He initially stated that he did not know. He then stated that he had just snorted an Aderall pill,” Blanchard said.
When Reddan was arraigned on Sept. 30 for possession and sale of heroin, he was ordered not to have or use regulated drugs without a prescription.
Reddan was released without bail on Tuesday.MORE IN This Just InDearest farm, with your well-worked fields full of food, I love you. Full Story
