Barre man faces drug charges
BARRE — A Barre man was arrested in St. Johnsbury on charges of possession of cocaine.
Timothy Roberts Jr., 35, was cited Tuesday after a police search of his vehicle.
According to police, officers in St. Johnsbury were called to the parking lot of the Mobil station shortly after 6 p.m. on a report of suspected drug activity.
Shortly after arriving, police began speaking with a male who was in the passenger seat of a red 1997 Subaru Legacy station wagon. During the conversation, police reportedly saw a glass pipe, which is commonly used to smoke illegal drugs.
After receiving written permission to search the vehicle, they seized several smoking devices, a silver spoon and a small pink plastic container. The container held a “white rocklike substance,” which later tested positive for cocaine, police said.
Roberts is to appear in St. Johnsbury criminal court in June.MORE IN This Just InGov. Peter Shumlin chats with Vermont Press Bureau chief Neal P. Full Story
