On January 5, 2016, at approximately 1740 hours, Brattleboro Police were conducting a routine vehicle patrol in the area of Canal Street. Police located an unoccupied Blue Volvo that had a substantial amount of unopened merchandise in and around it. Investigation led police to believe the merchandise was stolen from area businesses. The vehicle was seized and a search warrant was applied for. When the warrant was executed, a significant amount of allegedly stolen goods were seized.
Based on evidence obtained during the search and through other area police agencies, it was determined that more stolen property was likely located in an apartment at 149 Canal Street. Another search warrant was granted and later executed at the residence, resulting in the seizure of another significant quantity of allegedly stolen merchandise from numerous area businesses.
As a result of this investigation, Lisa Akey and Timothy Wainwright were arrested for the offense of Possession of Stolen Property (Felony), and will appear in the Windham County Superior Court, Criminal Division, at a later date. This investigation is continuing and further arrests may be forthcoming. The Brattleboro Fire Department and the Hinsdale NH Police Department assisted with this investigation.
