in Glover/Newport/News

GLOVER — Three men from Connecticut are accused of stealing a 1931 Ford that was being stored in Glover, as well as being in possession of heroin at the time.

At around 8 p.m. last Wednesday, police say they were on the lookout for a stolen antique 1931 Ford Model A that had been taken from a barn in Glover, owned by 52-year-old Brian Perron

The classic automobile was witnessed being loaded onto a trailer with Connecticut plates by a neighbor who watched the whole thing take place with a pair of binoculars.

Another neighbor tipped Perron off that the vehicle was stolen when he saw it being hauled down the road, thinking it had been sold.

Shortly after reporting the theft to police, troopers observed a vehicle matching the description headed southbound on Interstate 91 in Ryegate.

Police stopped the vehicle, and during the course of the investigation learned of heroin inside.

David Whalen, 32, Jason Tamborini, 39, and Daniel Garrita, 32, all of Middletown, CT, were taken into custody for grand larceny and possession of heroin.

All three men were lodged for lack of bail.
