Dimas Ocasio, 44, of Brattleboro, VT
On 9/19/20 Brattleboro Police attempted to stop a vehicle that was operating on South Main St. due to the vehicle’s plates not matching the vehicle, and knowledge that the operator, Dimas Ocasio, a 44 year old male from Brattleboro, does not possess a valid license.
Upon initiation of the traffic stop, the vehicle took off at a high rate of speed, and travelled through the Central St. neighborhood. Due to concerns for public safety, Brattleboro Police did not pursue the vehicle.
The vehicle was later located in a parking lot on Canal St. Police then searched the nearby Lodge, and located Ocasio hiding in one of the rooms.
Ocasio was placed into custody, and transported to the Brattleboro Police Department. There he was processed, and released on court ordered conditions of release. Ocasio was issued a citation for Grossly Negligent Operation and Attempt to Elude, and will appear at Windham County Superior Court on 9/21/20 to answer his charges.
Ocasio was also issued several VCVCs related to this incident.
