Vt. man pleads to drug chargesNovember 28,2013WHITE RIVER JUNCTION — A Vermont man has pleaded guilty to three drug possession charges, two retail theft counts and several other offenses.

The Eagle Times reports that in addition to a credit card fraud charge from 2012, Carvalho pleaded guilty to retail theft from Cumberland Farms on Sept. 9 when he attempted to steal beer and another on Sept. 16 after leaving the Price Chopper without paying for some drinks.
