Aggravated Operating Without Owners Consent

Jesse Martin, 19, of Brattleboro, VT

Officer Penniman

On 8/8/17 Brattleboro Police took a report of a stolen dirt bike. The complainant believed that Jesse Martin was the responsible party for the theft.

Further investigation lead to the conclusion that Martin had in fact taken the dirt bike without the owner's permission, which lead to the dirt bike going missing. The dirt bike has not yet been recovered.

Investigation also revealed that Martin had operated another dirt bike that was owned by the complainant, and that Martin did not have permission to operate the bike. In the State of Vermont, a dirt bike falls under the definition of a Motor Vehicle.

Martin was cited for Operating Without Owner's Consent, and Aggravated Operating Without Owner's Consent. Martin will appear at Windham County Superior Court on 10/3/17 to answer the charges.
