2 Vt. brothers charged in burglary and assault

Posted: Updated:

BARRE, Vt. (AP) - Two brothers, including one who is at large and is considered armed and dangerous, are facing charges they threatened to kill a Vermont man and his dog while stealing $1,185 from the victim's Barre apartment.

Barre police say 33-year-old David Garneau, of Barre, and 30-year-old Jonathan Garneau, of Williamstown, were charged following the early morning July 13 incident in which a 21-year-old Barre man was assaulted and robbed with a silver and brass pistol.

Police say the Garneaus were last seen speeding away. Arrest warrants were obtained for both brothers on charges of burglary, aggravated assault and grand larceny.

David Garneau has since been arrested. He's being held on $50,000 bail. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.

Jonathan Garneau has not been apprehended.
