"...the alleged vehicle..."

The banner should do some investigating to determine if it really was a vehicle. Shouldn't take too long.

The " alleged editor" needs to go back and take Journalism 101 again. Allegedly.

That's great they were caught. Now, I would think a better story would be for a reporter to investigate about the open cigarette case. Why it wasnt locked, what other stores don't practice locking them. Because I am sure it isnt just Paulin's. Does a liquor control officer, the same one that does alcohol/tobacco stings, check on these violations? And if it isnt getting done or followed through on for certain businesses, why?

The Bennington Banner has been tearing me apart for years and I have just let t go, but as our local newspaper it is the banners responsibility to get the story right and THEY NEVER DO! In this article Mr. John D. Waller fails to include the fact that when they executed the search warrant for mine and Trevers home- they found absolutely nothing! We have both been clean and sober for more than 2 years! They found all of the illegal items in Amber Harmons baby bag! They also failed to mention that the eyewitness stated that I never left the vehicle, that, "the driver appeared to be shuffling through something inside the vehicle." I was at Off The Wall to get a membership, I was riffling through my purse because I couldn't find my wallet, I had thought Harmon had taken it. The Banner also failed to mention that Harmon stole $400, 4 of Trevers checks and 2 of my cash cards from our home after we had taken her and her baby in, of course that wouldn't be mentioned, because we were once criminals and are ex-addicts, all fingers point at us and I am sick of this pathetic excuse for a paper exploiting me and not even getting the story straight. We were trying to help Harmon because her husband beat her, so we let her and her baby move into our home. In 1 week she ruined our lives and we were just trying to provide a safe place for her and her baby! So, before you all start judging and passing along this story at the very least get it right. The banner is more like the National Inquirer everyday.

"The search warrants also led to the arrest of Bushika and Trevor Hoag, 33, of Bennington, for the recent cigarette theft at Paulin's Store in North Bennington. "

What part of THAT did the paper get wrong?????? LOL

I suppose, if your living off the taxpayers, might as well do it in jail.

Smoke em if ya got em.

Obviously, Harmon made Bushika and Hoag steal the cigarettes. I also understand that it was Harmon's baby, who smokes up to 3 packs a day, that drove Bushika and Hoag to Paulins for the heist.

I also have heard that Real Vermonter is offering Harmon a place to stay, now that she may have worn out her welcome elsewhere.

Clean and sober for more than 2 years! WOW! Now thats something to be proud of! CRACKER! Sounds like a pipe dream to me! Another pipe dream is that I would offer anything but "THE END" to any of these criminals! There is an open invitation to make an attempt victimize me anytime if you like! I'll give you a place to not live!

What happened here is that these piles of protoplasm probably started blubbering and pointing fingers at one another the minute the Bennington PD identified them. Good, heads-up arrest by the patrol officer who interrupted the BFMV in progress. It didn't take the cops two years to catch them; it took two years for these mental giants to commit a business burglary in full view of surveillance cameras. Hey Mensa, over here!
