Hartford, Vermont, Tuesday, May 8, 2019 – Police were dispatched late yesterday to a private residence along the 100 block of Hollow Drive for a theft of several thousand dollars of firearms taken from a vehicle that had been left parked for several days while the owner traveled.  All but one of those firearms were recovered yesterday when Massachusetts State Police Troopers and investigators, and the Holyoke Police arrested 32 year old Timothy Keith of White River Junction and 33 year old Phillip Damone of Grantham, New Hampshire when the two attempted to exchange the firearms for drugs and cash.   For more information, see: mspnews.org/2019/05/illegally-possessed-firearms-and-narcotics-seized-in-joint-effort-in-holyoke/
