WAITSFIELD — A 37-year-old man was arrested following an incident in Waitsfield last month.

On October 15, police say they began investigating an incident that occurred at a home on North Road.

Investigators learned that a resident at that address, identified as Andrew Wimble, of Waitsfield, had several firearms stored in the home which he was prohibited from possessing due to prior criminal convictions.

A search warrant was obtained for the residence and executed by troopers on Tuesday.

Police say a search of the home resulted in the recovery of several firearms.

Wimble was not present at the home at the time of execution but later arrived at the residence at which time he was found to be operating a motor vehicle without the required ignition interlock device per restrictions on his Vermont operator’s license.

Wimble was taken into custody and transported to the Berlin barracks for processing.

He was processed and issued a citation to appear in court today to answer to the charges of persons prohibited from possessing firearms and operating with a criminally suspended license and he was released.
