POWNAL, Vt. (AP) - Police say they arrested two people, one of them a 16-year-old boy, in connection with a break-in that happened over the weekend at a Vermont race track.

State police were notified that someone had broken into a building at the Green Mountain Racetrack on U.S. Route 7 in Pownal around 1:45 a.m. Saturday.

A trooper and two Bennington police officers responded. They found that a window shattered with a brick to gain entry to the building.

Trooper Alex Saxby reported that the officers discovered two suspects hiding behind a bar. Police say one man was 20-year old Joshua Eriksen. They did not identify the teen.

Eriksen faces a burglary charge. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer and a phone number couldn’t be found for him.
