GROTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man facing a charge of dispensing a drug that killed a man has been accused of violating his conditions of release.

John Faucette III, of Groton, had pleaded not guilty to giving an opiate drug to Marcus Smith, who died July 5 after he was found unresponsive at Faucette’s home. Faucette was released on bail with a 24-hour curfew and sheriff’s department check-ins.

The Caledonian Record reports (https://bit.ly/2eFHhq1) police say Faucette was pulled over on Sept. 8 because his license plate had no registration sticker. Police said Faucette provided a false name, had no driver’s license and had Suboxone.

Faucette pleaded not guilty to charges of violating conditions of release and narcotics possession Monday. He was released after posting bail. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
