BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A Winooski man with a lengthy criminal history is behind bars facing burglary charges.
Burlington police say early Monday morning, three people, including Chad Paquette, 43, smashed the front door to the Champlain Farms on Shelburne Road.
Police say the suspects stole several packs of cigarettes in a trash bag.
Hours later, police responded to what appeared to be the same three people trying to break into a car on North Champlain Street. Police arrested Paquette after a brief foot pursuit.
Paquette is in prison on an outstanding “no bail” arrest warrant stemming from previous violations.
