MILTON — Vermont State Game Wardens charged four Chittenden County men for poaching several deer.

Paul Brown, 35, of Milton was arraigned on December 5 in Chittenden Superior Court for several fish and wildlife crimes, and violating conditions of release of an earlier poaching case this year which prohibited him from hunting in Vermont and possessing firearms, bows and arrows.

Wardens executed a number of search warrants relating to several illegal deer taken by Brown and 28-year-old Tony Larock of Milton, 18-year-old Colby Ducharme of Milton, and 32-year-old Chad Limoge of Colchester.
