BARTON — Police say they have made an arrest after a burglary that took place at a residence on Hollow Road in Barton, on December 22.

Timothy Roberts, 38, of Barton, was arrested on Thursday after police say they received a tip that a man, matching the description from the burglary, had been seen walking house to house on Lake Region Road.

Troopers responded to the area and spoke with the man, later identified as Roberts, and say he was wearing some of the clothing that appeared to match the clothing in the burglary.

Further investigation revealed Roberts was in possession of the army jacket seen in the surveillance footage.

Roberts was arrested and transported to Derby for processing. He was lodged at Northern State Correctional Facility on $15,000 bail.

This morning, the Vermont State Police say they conducted a search warrant at Roberts home at 390 Lake Region Road.

They say the search warrant resulted in finding the Carhartt hat and black mask used in the burglary.
