ST. JOHNSBURY — A Vermont man is facing charges stemming from the theft of three laptop computers and a muzzle-loading firearm from his grandmother’s New Hampshire home on Thanksgiving Day.
St. Johnsbury police say 18-year-old Richard Kendall and his 22-year-old half-brother, Claude Caron Jr., stole the items from Kendell’s grandmother’s house in Center Barnstead, N.H.
The two men pleaded not guilty in a St. Johnsbury court to felony charges of possession of stolen property. They were released.
Court documents say Kendall told police he and Caron went to his grandmother’s home on Thanksgiving night looking for gas money and found everyone asleep.
The Caledonian Record (http://bit.ly/St0wC5) says Kendall told police the laptops were in view and the muzzleloader was in an unlocked vehicle in the driveway.
