Vermont Man Caught Breaking into Lebanon PD Impound Lot


On Thursday, May 12, 2022, a male was observed inside the Lebanon Police Department’s Secure Impound Lot. Officers entered the area and determined the male subject was hiding inside of one of the impounded vehicles.

Corporal Nicholas Alden with K-9 Nitro, along with other Lebanon Officers and members of the NH Attorney General’s Drug Task Force, surrounded the vehicle and ordered the male out. Upon receiving no response, Officers moved to the vehicle and took the male into custody with the assistance of K-9 Nitro. 

The male was identified as Damien Rousseau, age 29, from Vershire, VT. 

Rousseau had been arrested by the Lebanon Police Department and was released the previous day for the possession of heroin. As part of that investigation, Rousseau’s vehicle had been seized pending a search warrant and placed into the secured impound lot. 

Upon executing the search warrant, Officers located a little more than a pound of methamphetamine, a substantial amount of cocaine, $2,000 US currency, and several loaded firearms were seized from the vehicle. 

Rousseau was held in preventative detention and was released to the custody of the Grafton County Sheriff’s Department, who transported Rousseau to the Grafton County House of Corrections, pending his arraignment on May 13, 2022.

The Lebanon Police Department and NH Attorney General’s Drug Task Force will continue to work together to stem the flow of illegal drugs into our community.
