The U.S. Attorney's office in Vermont announced Friday that it collected $3.4 million in fines, restitution recoveries, civil judgments and forefitures for the fiscal year that ended Oct. 30, money that will be used to support crime victims and law enforcement efforts.

"These monies provide much-needed financial resources to state and local law enforcement and to the crime victims fund," U.S. Attorney Tristram Coffin said in a statement

BFPD apply for this money and take a bite out of crime. Keep u7p the good work now.

great job BFPD , the harder we are on drug dealers and the more we stay on top of them the better. Hopefully they learn their lesson or move away. At the very least our kids will see these arrests and se what doing drugs and selling them will do for them.
I'd love to see mug shots too.....the reformer should start adding that to the police logs, kind of a wall of shame.

Not going to happen, the Reform doesn't want to add shame and embarrassment those misguided citizens.

In the mean time down at the pharmacy the soccer moms are picking up their legal fix and getting some medicine for their kids to keep them drugged up so they can put up with humoring the hippie teacher at school who has acid trip flashbacks during class.

wow, you ppl are pathetic. why don't you go down to the station and heckle them in their cages? would that satisfy your fix?

and what exactly were they arrested for? If it's just pot, then what a waste of money. When's the last time someone died of pot?

You got to be a pothead to make statements like that.Instead of heckling them in jail start putting them in stocks in the town square. Show them what disgrace an shame really means, which they have none. Theses bums aren't spring chickens they have been doing this for sum time.That is about 35 busted in 6 mo. There are bigger fish to be caught. Good job all involved.

don't forget, every time you go over the speed limit, you're a criminal... every time you copy a CD without the permission of the creator of the material, you're a criminal... every time you make a lane change, or turn without using your signals, you're a criminal... ALL of us are criminals... it's just to what extent...

and don't forget, what's a crime here, might not be a crime in other states/nations... who are we to judge other peoples actions, especially if they don't harm anyone else?

Yall are nuts. If this was another one of their scrawny pot plants, several 3" resin-encrusted pipes, zig-zags, roaches & dime-bags confiscated in their regular 6-town jack-booted skinhead doggypiles that cost taxpayers millions for courts, defenses, prison time & police budget it's a joke.

Hopefully Shumlin will put a stop to this nonsense that's bankrupting us.

Too many cops w/nothing to do but make themselves look like heroes to maintain their bloated budgets.

'Drughouses'? How very CSI. So, they were passing a dubie around the room or doing bong hits?

Tsk, tsk.

String em up & hang em @ high noon. We want to see bodies swaying in the breeze!

It is pretty sad that it has to come to this. Everyone has done wrong one time or another. Those that live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. You'll be pretty cold this winter. It's to bad that others misinterpret things as wrong. GET A GRIP ON REALITY! F@#$ THE 5-0, and the SNITCHES!

THERE ARE BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT. IN VERMONT EVERYONE IS A$$ BACKWARDS. THERE IS NO REAL JUSTICE FOR THOSE WHO TOUCH OUR BABIES OR RAPE OUR WOMEN. ON THE OTHER HAND IF YOU SELL SOME DRUGS OR STEAL PERSONAL WALLETS, PURSES, AND OTHER PERSONAL BELONGING YOU ARE THE BIGGEST SCUMBAG AROUND. ARE YOU REALLY SERIOUS ABOUT THAT. WHERE IS ALL THE JUSTICE!

Yeah really. I haven't had any weed in a long time, everyone is too frikkin paranoid & I'm too paranoid to grow my own. My husband would wring my neck if I got busted for anything, but said he'd pay for all the weed I want if I quit drinking altogether.

In comment #14 I was being sarcastic.

Reading about their stupid Keystone, Dick Tracy antics,'Dutch', the usual cast of characters & all the piddly-a*s details of their neverending 'war on drugs' which invariably turns out to be posession, growing scrawny plants on the back porch or gro-light under the sink, handful of assorted pills, or penny-ante pot dealers selling dime bags.

They get their cop on & act like it's the French Connection.

If they get such a thrill I'd like to see them go to Pheonix & see how much fun it really is rollin w/the big dogs.

This was not a case of "hard work" by the Bellows Falls PD. They threatened to take someone's kids away from her so she snitched. Her name is Betty Bashaw or Betty Jones now I believe. Stop busting people for marijuana. Decriminalize it.
