Stowe’s fire department chief, Kyle Walker, has been suspended amid a criminal investigation into his alleged actions as a police officer.
The man who police say told them he started eight Stowe fires in the past two years, causing $1.5 million in damage, pleaded not guilty last week to eight counts of arson and was released back into the community.
A car chase that began in Morristown and involved officers from three different departments ended with the driver and three passengers, all from Philadelphia, being accused of drug-related offenses by police.
Jan. 10 at 6 p.m., a vehicle headed north on Route 100 in the town of Lowell was struck by a frozen Gatorade bottle. The ordnance caused roughly $2,000 in damage to the vehicle, police say. Anyone with information is asked to call the state police Derby barracks at 334-8881.
A man intentionally set fire to the Stowe Cable building at 172 Thomas Lane just before 6 a.m. on Jan. 7, according to police.
