    THETFORD — Vermont State Police say a couple robbed at gunpoint in an acquaintance’s driveway had been lured there.

    Police said Caitlyn and Chris Burnham of Bradford were visiting with McKayla Jordan in Thetford. The three were in the Burnhams’ car when two masked men came out of the woods and pointed a handgun at Chris Burnham. They left with his wallet and about $1,000.

    The Burnhams told police that despite the masks, they were able to identify both men.

    Police later arrested 28-year-old Buddy Covey of Bradford and 42-year-old Jamie Lussier of Croydon, N.H., on charges of assault and robbery. They were being arraigned Thursday.

    They said the 24-year-old Jordan will appear in court at a later date.
