  1. “were stolen from the Autosaver Group on Memorial Drive were stolen off the lots. “

  2. It’s time to bring back the tried and true deterrent of hanging horse thieves for those who steal the modern equivalent…instead the Vermont statutes call it “operating without owner’s consent” and treat it akin to shoplifting a candy bar…

  3. Hope the fellow who tried to move the roadkill recovers quickly and fully.
    No good deed goes unpunished in VT.
