On Friday April 26, 2019, shortly before 3:00 PM, a UPS delivery driver reported a suspicious male walking and approaching homes in a neighborhood off Seminary Hill, in West Lebanon. Lebanon officers were sent to investigate and given a description of the male suspect. A responding officer observed the suspect walking down Seminary Hill and attempted to contact him when the suspect took off running. A short foot chase ensued before the suspect was taken into custody on South Main St.
The male was identified as Marcello Terino, age 28, of White River Jct., VT. Terino was found to be in possession of various articles belonging to multiple residents from the West Lebanon neighborhood, where the suspicious behavior had been reported. Officers were able to determine that Terino had just burglarized a household while the residents were at work.
Terino was arrested and charged with Burglary, a Class B Felony, and resisting arrest or detention, a Class A Misdemeanor. The investigation is on-going, and further charges may still be pending. He was held at the Grafton County House of Corrections, without bail, and was scheduled to be arraigned on Monday April 29, 2019 at the Grafton County Superior Court.
