RUTLAND, Vt. - Federal agents say they busted a crack dealer in Rutland buying guns with drugs.

They say Collin Blount, known on the street as "Wheezy," met with an undercover agent outside Home Depot. The agent got tipped off by an informant that Blount wanted a gun. The agent got in Blount's car and allegedly traded a handgun for crack. When the undercover agent got out of the vehicle, other agents moved in. The area was blocked off and authorities say Blount ran into other vehicles and then over an embankment. Blount then fled into the woods on foot. He was found by a police dog and arrested.
