ST. JOHNSBURY — A 43-year-old man from Sheffield was arrested on a warrant following an incident in St. Johnsbury.

On December 26, 2022, police say they initiated a traffic stop on Vermont Route 122 in the area of Sheffield Square Road.

The driver allegedly falsely identified himself as a family member.

Yesterday, the St. Johnsbury barracks was notified by the family member that the driver’s license would soon be suspended.

Police say Prue had a criminally suspended driver license at the time of the enforcement stop.

He was taken into custody on Hospital Drive in St. Johnsbury at around 8:05 a.m. and transported to the St. Johnsbury barracks where he was processed for criminal DLS and providing false information to law enforcement.

Following Prue’s processing at the barracks, he was transported to NECC in St. Johnsbury on an active parole board arrest warrant.
