Shortly before 8 pm August 19, the Vermont State Police received a report of a male that pulled a gun on another male at the Exit 18 Maplefields in Georgia. The caller reported that the suspect fled the scene in a black four door older model VW Jetta with a white temporary plate last seen heading toward the interstate on US Route 7 in Georgia.

The victims told state police said they had agreed to meet the suspect at the Maplefields as he was reportedly selling a Go-Pro on Facebook Marketplace that had been stolen recently out of the truck of one of the victims. Upon confronting the suspect with the information that it was their Go-Pro, the suspect grabbed the camera back and pulled a gun on the victim and his friends.

The victims described the gun as a black semi-automatic handgun and said that the suspect racked the slide of the handgun as he drew it from underneath his coat and then pointed it at them.

Attached are pictures of the suspect who has yet to be identified. Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect is asked to contact the Vermont State Police St. Albans Barracks at 802-524-5993. Tips also may be submitted anonymously online at
