ENOSBURG — A Newark man was taken into custody late Friday evening in connection with the theft of a vintage sign from an Enosburg property earlier in the month.

Vermont State Police St Albans Barracks responded to a grand larceny report on Dec. 22, at 5:28 p.m. from 65 West Berkshire Road.

Ray Kittell, 64, reported his “Flying A Service” sign, a family heirloom over 30 years old, was stolen.

After advising Kittell to post about the theft on social media, the sign was discovered at an antique store in New Hampshire.

The store owner identified Travis Barber, 44, as the individual who sold the stolen sign.

The sign had been damaged during the theft.

Barber was apprehended at his Newark residence on Dec. 29 at 10:45 p.m., initially on an unrelated arrest warrant.

Following his arrest, Barber was also cited for grand larceny and unlawful mischief in connection with the Enosburg incident.

The antique sign has since been returned to Kittell.
