Rash of burglaries prompts meeting in Killington
By Josh O'Gorman
KILLINGTON - The public is invited to attend a neighborhood watch meeting at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Sherburne Memorial Library.
“It’s important for citizens to get involved as much as they can, when they can,” said Whit Montgomery, Killington’s first constable.
The town has seen seven burglaries in recent months, with six of the seven happening in second homes. Montgomery said six of the seven appear to be connected and asked the public to attend the meeting and to keep an eye out for suspicious activity.
“I just urge people to be vigilant and if they see something strange or out of place to not be afraid to pick up the phone and report it,” Montgomery said.
