ST. JOHNSBURY — Vermont State Police responded to reports of two separate motor vehicle crashes near the intersections of Pierce Road and New Boston Road, as well as Mt. Pisgah Road and New Boston Road in St. Johnsbury yesterday.

While attending to the crashes, troopers encountered Joseph Tanner, 47, of Lyndon, walking along US-5 with a gas can, moving away from the crash sites.

Suspecting Tanner was wanted on an outstanding warrant, they approached him for questioning regarding his involvement in the incidents.

The investigation confirmed that Tanner was not involved in the accidents; however, he was indeed wanted on an outstanding warrant for a suspended driver’s license due to a criminal violation.

Tanner was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Vermont State Police St. Johnsbury Barracks for processing.

After processing, Tanner was cited to appear in Caledonia County Superior Court on Jan. 22, at 8:30 a.m. He was then taken to the Northeast Correctional Complex where he was held on bail pending his court appearance.
