Police: Burlington burglary was a hoax

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Police say it was a Burlington burglary hoax.

Back in February, a resident on LaFountain Street told police he found a burglar inside his home, fought him off and ended up firing his gun in the process.

Police now say 41-year-old James Maxfield made the whole thing up. After a lengthy investigation police determined Maxfield staged an elaborate fight scene inside his home and fired a gun into his own floor. He faces multiple charges.
