WELLS — A 66-year-old man was arrested following an incident in Wells on Friday.
Authorities say they were notified of a man taking weapons from a home on Vermont Route 31 at around 11:10 a.m.
Police say the man stole a crossbow and shotgun from a building on the property, left, and then returned back to the home.
Upon returning to the home, a family member of the homeowner confronted the man, identified as Rondie C. Ciccarelli, of Wells, and told him to leave the property.
An argument ensued and Ciccarelli threatened the family member by pointing a handgun at her, causing her to fear serious imminent bodily injury or death.
Troopers located Ciccarelli at his home in Wells and recovered the property stolen, and the firearm used during the incident.
He was taken into custody for the offenses of aggravated assault and grand larceny and transported to the Vermont State Police Rutland barracks for processing.
Ciccarelli was lodged at the Marble Valley Regional Correction Facility.
He was cited to appear in court to answer the charges of aggravated assault, and grand larceny tomorrow.
