August 12, 2019

WORCESTER, Vt. (AP) — A Royalton man is accused of stealing $10,000 worth of cigarettes from a market in Worcester.

Vermont State Police say the 76 cartons of cigarettes and other items from a burglary in Washington and two break-ins at the Waterbury Park and Ride were found in the vehicle of 46-year-old Thomas Farnsworth. WCAX-TV reports that police say Farnsworth’s sneakers also matched a footprint left behind at LBJ’s Grocery from where the cigarettes were stolen.

It was not immediately known if Farnsworth is being represented by an attorney. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.
