A busy few days for area law enforcement
Police Search for Armed Robber: Vermont State Police, Springfield Police and Weathersfield Police searched a cornfield near Stoughton Pond in Perkinsville on Tuesday afternoon for a suspect in a Springfield bank robbery. The Windsor County Credit Union was robbed Tuesday afternoon.

According to police the suspect was armed with a 9 mm handgun and held up the credit union around 12:30 p.m. The suspect fled in a stolen vehicle which was located on Plains RD in Perkinsville.

State and local police surrounded the field and waited for a K9 unit to respond. A search of the area did not turn up the suspect. Police think the suspect may have had help leaving the abandoned stolen vehicle. The investigation is on going and the public is asked to contact Springfield Police with any information.

I hope everyone got a chance to get out this past weekend and enjoy some of our fall foliage. Appreciation for our colorful trees shouldn't be just for out-of-state leaf peepers. I know I was in awe when I was out and about on Saturday.

And head up to the Center Meeting House, the park area is just gorgeous. Or maybe take a stroll around Stoughton Pond. The colors are there-get out and enjoy them while you can.
