FAIRLEE — Police say two residents of Fairlee were charged with selling stolen items on Monday.

Police were notified that Anthony Cormier, 32, and Mina Flemming, 24, were selling items out of a barn located on the property of the apartment complex where they reside.

The barn and its contents belong to an estate as the owner had recently passed away.

Police say they spoke with the executors of the estate and learned Cormier and Flemming did not have permission to enter the barn or take or sell anything.

According to the report, it was found that two John Deere Garden tractors were missing and a third tractor that Flemming had listed for sale was still in the barn but had been moved and was no longer listed for sale.

Police say they checked the property several times throughout the day and at nearly 3:40 p.m, they located Cormier and Flemming in the process of selling the tractor which had been removed from the barn and was being loaded on a trailer.

Both are scheduled to appear in court on September 18 to answer to the charges of burglary and grand larceny.

Police are still investigating this case and several other items including the two John Deere riding lawn mowers belonging to the estate are missing from the barn.

Anyone that has purchased items from Cormier or Flemming or has information regarding this incident are being asked to call Tpr. Lewis at 802-222-4680.
