Police: Chemical spill in Swanton was an inside job

Posted: Updated:
SWANTON, Vt. -

Police say last week's chemical spill in Swanton was an inside job.

State police arrested Neal Burgoyne in connection to the suspicious chemical spill.

The 31-year-old is accused of mixing chemicals in a garbage can at the Tractor Supply Store in Swanton where he worked.

It created a toxic gas that forced the store to be evacuated and sent multiple people to the hospital.

Burgoyne's been charged with Reckless Endangerment and Disorderly Conduct.

He was cited and released. He's due in court in July.
