An Orleans woman was arrested for allegedly stealing from five different motor vehicles in town, possession of cocaine and felony fentanyl trafficking. Brie Lalime, 21, pleaded not guilty to the charges in Caledonia Superior Court on Monday and was released on conditions by Judge Justin Jiron. St. Johnsbury Police say they were alerted to the situation on the morning of Sept. 29 by local resident Elijah Emerson. “He saw a young woman sleeping on the front passenger seat of his car located at 525 Summer Street,” wrote Ofc. Jasmine Hendry in her report. “Emerson stated the woman was wrapped in a maroon fleece blanket and was late teens or early twenties.” Police said they then located Lalime behind a building at 340 Summer Street and she was found to be in possession of cocaine in a clear plastic bag tucked in her left shoe. Police said Lalime was also in possession of 121.8 milligrams of fentanyl in an orange bag she was carrying. Police said they also found multiple items in the bag that had been reported stolen by local residents. She was accused of five alleged car thefts resulting in charges of misdemeanor petit larceny. Lalime faces a possible sentence of up to 36 years in prison and over $1 million dollars in fines.
