Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : MORRISVILLE — In a well-coordinated effort between local law enforcement agencies, authorities successfully apprehended two individuals who were wanted in connection with a recent burglary. The arrests took place on Monday afternoon at the bustling Morrisville Shopping Plaza, bringing relief to the community and highlighting the effectiveness of collaborative crime-fighting strategies.

The incident unfolded around 4:23 p.m., when the Morristown Police Department promptly responded to a retail theft complaint at the popular Marshall’s store located within the plaza. The suspect, identified as Amanda Laraway, a 40-year-old resident of Johnson, had already been sought by the Lamoille County Sheriff’s Department for her alleged involvement in a burglary at the River Valley Store on Rt. 100C in Johnson the previous day.

Upon their arrival, Morristown Police joined forces with Lamoille County Sheriff’s Deputies, who had also rushed to the scene. It was during their thorough investigation that they stumbled upon a stolen flatbed truck in the shopping plaza’s parking lot, raising suspicions further. The officers approached the vehicle cautiously and discovered two individuals sound asleep inside. One of them was visually identified as Dilan Jiron, a 27-year-old North Hyde Park resident, who, like Laraway, was also wanted in connection with the River Valley Store burglary.

Earlier in the day, the Lamoille County Sheriff’s Department had issued a statewide police broadcast, appealing for assistance in locating the stolen truck and both Laraway and Jiron. The successful apprehension of the suspects was a direct result of this collaborative effort.

As the investigation unfolded, the identity of the second individual found in the stolen truck was revealed as Jenel Poulin, a 37-year-old Morristown resident. Poulin was promptly taken into custody due to two outstanding warrants for possession of regulated drugs, with bail set at $1,700.

Jiron, on the other hand, faces multiple charges, including two counts of aggravated operation of a vehicle without the owner’s consent, burglary, felony unlawful mischief, and possession of heroin. He was subsequently transported to the Northeast Correctional facility and is currently being held on $7,500 bail.

Laraway, the primary suspect, has been charged with retail theft, resisting arrest, and burglary. Additionally, she was found to have an outstanding warrant for theft. Laraway was lodged at Chittenden Regional Center, where her bail was set at $10,000.

The investigation is ongoing, with authorities now focused on recovering the stolen items from the River Valley burglary. These items include over 50 cartons of cigarettes, more than 60 vape cartridges, $450 in coins, and various other goods. The Lamoille County Sheriff’s Department is urging anyone with information related to these crimes to come forward and contact them at 802-888-3502, ensuring that justice is fully served and the stolen property is returned to its rightful owners.
