COVENTRY — Dustin Sheltra, 27, of Charleston, has been cited for burglary and possession of stolen property following a break-in at a Coventry storage unit, according to the Vermont State Police.

The authorities were initially alerted to the crime on July 5, when Joseph Lafleur, 40, of Burlington, reported that his storage unit on Route 5 had been burglarized. Items reported stolen included two rifles, fishing gear, camping gear, a Specialized road bike, and a Transition Sentinel mountain bike.
