LYNDONVILLE — A routine check on a suspicious vehicle by Lyndonville Police Department led to the arrest of a 51-year-old Island Pond man wanted on a two-decade-old warrant, authorities said Wednesday.

According to the Lyndonville Police Department, Officer Gerrish contacted the vehicle at the intersection of Broad Street and Depot Street on Dec. 5 at 11:50 p.m.
