The suspect was described as 150-175 pounds, slim, 5’’11 to six feet tall, wearing a tan, nylon puffy coat with a hood and blue board shorts. The suspect was also wearing mechanic gloves with a white lining.

Stolen car spotted

A sliver Pontiac Sunfire was spotted driving erratically on Sept. 26 on the Channel Parkway. Police followed the vehicle on Green Mountain Road.
