SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Police have cited a Vermont man in connection with car break-ins in South Burlington last month.

Thirty-one-year-old Richard Rayta, of Alburgh, is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 19. He’s expected to be charged with petty larceny, grand larceny and unlawful mischief.

It wasn’t immediately known if Rayta has an attorney, and a phone number couldn’t be found for him.

Police say items including two purses and a laptop were stolen from vehicles at The Edge Sports & Fitness club on Nov. 15. Two vehicles had their windows smashed, and a third car was unlocked.

Police say officers were able to locate the laptop because it was being sold on social media.

Rayta is being held by the Department of Corrections in Swanton on similar charges.
