Police arrest suspect in DMV burglary

By

Seven months after the overnight theft of an ATM containing $20,000 from the Department of Motor Vehicles in South Burlington, police reported the arrest of a suspect from Essex Jct.

Brian LeClair, 36, was cited for burglary, aggravated operation without owner’s consent and two counts of grand larceny, according to a press release.

In October, police said LeClair and another male suspect stole a work truck from a Williston business, an enclosed trailer from a Colchester business and U-Haul dolly from Burlington before committing the Market St. burglary.

The stolen trailer, truck, dolly and ATM were located in Fairfax. DNA found inside the truck was matched to LeClair and led to his May 12 arrest, police said. He was taken into custody without incident and lodged at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility in lieu of $25,000 bail.

LeClair was scheduled to appear in Chittenden County Superior Court, Criminal Division on May 15 to answer the citation.
