PRESS RELEASE
 

On March 28, 2022, State Police arrested Robert W. Morris, 56, of Alburgh, Vermont for one count of Grand Larceny 2nd degree.

On June 21, 2021, at approximately 8:38pm, State Police were called to the Safe Harbor-Gaines Marina located on Lake Street in the village of Rouses Point for a report of a stolen Prestige 500 boat.

A preliminary investigation determined that several individuals saw the boat leaving its dock being driven in an unusual way and that once it reached open water, fled at full speed.

During the investigation, the Department of Homeland Security located Morris and the boat in Burton Island, Vermont.

Morris was arraigned in the town of Champlain Court and is due to reappear at a later date.
