BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man has denied charges stemming from a weekend police pursuit that stretched from South Burlington into Burlington before ending with a crash.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/2arTsql ) 35-year-old Brian LeClair pleaded not guilty Monday to operating a car without the owner’s consent and possession of stolen property.

Shelburne police say officers attempted to stop LeClair’s truck in South Burlington on Sunday night after he was observed weaving in and out of lanes while over the speed limit.

Sgt. Allen Fortin says LeClair failed to stop and continued further until he crashed into a utility pole in Burlington.

Police confirmed Monday that the truck LeClair was driving had been stolen. Officers recovered a safe containing $3,300 from the vehicle that belonged to a Dunkin’ Donuts franchise in Colchester.
