Nationwide DWI Crackdown

Person of Interest Apprehended on Hunt Street
Arrest was just before BFA Fairfax let out !
On August 29th, 2012 State Troopers with the
assistance of the United States Border Patrol
and Department of Corrections Field Supervision
Unit officers converged upon - and took into
custody - 33 year-old Gregory Wolcott of Fletcher,
for multiple outstanding warrants.
Wolcott had been wanted by the Department of
Corrections for several counts of Escape from
furlough since May 2012. Additionally, Wolcott
is the primary person of interest in dozens of
burglaries, terrorizing the Champlain Valley
over the past six weeks.
The VSP investigation led law enforcement to
the Lamoille River in Fairfax. Wolcott was
located and converged upon. As law enforcement
attempted to apprehend Wolcott, he attempted
to flee on an ATV. During this desperate attempt,
Wolcott crashed the ATV into a tree and continued
his attempt on foot. This last escape attempt
failed as Troopers located Wolcott on the river
bank along Hunt Street where Wolcott was taken
into custody.
Wolcott was processed at the St. Albans State
Police barracks and currently being held without
bail. Wolcott is expected to be in Franklin
County District court at a later date.
