in scrapyard scam
An employee at a Rutland Town salvage yard and a customer are facing felony charges for allegedly tipping the scales on scrap metal brought to Rosen & Berger Auto Parts, according to Vermont State Police.
Andrew Grandchamp, 52, of Brandon, was arrested Tuesday and charged with embezzlement and conspiracy for allegedly taking payment — a pack of cigarettes — for falsifying the weight of scrap metal delivered to the yard by Robert Withington of Rutland.
Withington, 42, was also arrested and charged with a felony count of conspiracy and misdemeanor offenses of larceny and driving with a suspended license.
Police said another man, Glenn Carvey, 44, of Rutland was charged with driving without a license. Police did not specify what role, if any, Carvey had in the alleged weight conspiracy.
All three men are scheduled to appear in Rutland criminal court in February.
