Damyon Norway, 30, of East Haven  has been charged in court with felony counts of burglary and aggravated operation of a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent. Norway, who failed to appear in court on Tuesday to answer the charges, is now the subject of an arrest warrant issued by Judge Lisa A. Warren. On April 25, Vermont State Police received a call from Barton resident Deborah Leach, 60, who said her deceased husband’s All-Terrain Vehicle had been stolen from her garage in the middle of the night. The missing ATV which is valued at $3,000, was entered into a police database as a stolen vehicle and a police press release was issued to the media asking the public for further information. Two days later, 73-year-old local resident David Deth answered the call. David said on 04/26/2022 he had seen a yellow Can-Am ATV outside of Damyon’s residence, and the ATV was covered with a tarp to conceal it. David stated he didn’t think much of it until the following day when he had read the news release in the paper.” Police said they then went to Norway’s residence in East Haven and located a yellow 2015 Can-Am Outlander in the backyard covered by a tarp. Police say Norway admitted he took the machine. Norway faces a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison and $3,000 in fines if convicted.
