SALISBURY — A man from Salisbury has been indicted for possession of a stolen firearm.
Scott Clark, 40, was arraigned before United States Magistrate Judge Kevin J. Doyle on Monday and was ordered detained pending trial.
According to court records, Clark had been burglarizing residences at the Waterhouses Campground in Salisbury.
On September 23, 2022, a concerned citizen contacted Vermont State Police after observing suspicious activity indicative of ongoing burglaries at the campground.
The responding trooper encountered Clark and Clark’s female companion at the campground and in the vicinity of a white Jeep Liberty.
During the encounter, Clark gave the trooper a false name and a false date of birth.
Clark was observed putting something in his companion’s purse and then dropping a black holster to the ground.
A black Glock .40 semi-automatic handgun was found in the companion’s purse.
Records from a local firearm store confirmed the firearm found in the purse was originally purchased by an individual who owns a residence at the Waterhouses Campground.
The investigation revealed that Clark had stolen the Glock .40 handgun from one of the residences at the campground.
Clark faces a maximum sentence of 10 years of imprisonment if convicted.
