On July 25, 2017 at approximately 1838, troopers from the Vermont State Police-Rutland barracks, responded to an armed robbery complaint at the Irving gas station located at 267 Main Street in Poultney, VT. Upon meeting with store employees, interviewing witnesses, and reviewing video footage, it was learned that at approximately 1835 hours, a lone white male subject entered the store, wearing a hooded carhartt sweatshirt, blue jeans, and grey sneakers. The male subject had his face covered with a cloth type material, brandished a hand gun and ordered the clerk to give him all of the money. The clerk opened the cash drawer and the perpetrator collected a large sum of cash and left the store.
