Some more information about the two New Mexico men arrested in connection with a murder-for-hire plot in Vermont.
Mark Staake, 41, and Tanner Ruane, 23, are accused of traveling to St. Albans to kill two people there. The plot apparently fell apart when the duo ended up lost at the Highgate border crossing and Staake got arrested for violating his probation. Ruane was caught a day later while driving through New York.
St. Albans police now say Ruane did go to St. Albans after Staake's arrest and waited at a local supermarket for a money transfer. But police say the two intended victims of the plot do not actually live in St. Albans. And there is no evidence anyone in the area was in any danger during Ruane's brief stop in the city.
