The Waterbury Village Police Department made two arrests on Thursday, Sept. 10.

• Shannon Edwards, 30, of Maple Street, Waterbury, was charged with possession of stolen property — a stolen mountain bike valued at more than $6,000. Police allege Edwards was riding the bike when it was demolished in a crash weeks ago.

Edwards was also charged with burglary and driving after license suspension. Police allege Edwards broke into Depot Beverage on River Road on Sunday, Sept. 6, and was caught on surveillance video committing the burglary. As police closed in, he ran off, and was not captured immediately, despite help from the Vermont State Police and a police dog.

The vehicle Edwards had been driving was towed, and police obtained a search warrant for the vehicle. Police allege items stolen from Depot Beverage were found inside the vehicle.

• Christopher Goslant, 19, of Barre was charged with petit larceny, attempted larceny and unlawful mischief.

Police allege Goslant tried to steal a four-wheel all-terrain vehicle, but damaged the ignition. When the ATV wouldn’t start, police allege, he stole a bicycle from the same residence.

Both men are due in Washington County court on Oct. 15.
