DUMMERSTON, VT. >> Vermont state police are searching for the person who stole more than 63 gallons of maple syrup from a farm stand.
Trooper James Matthews says the syrup was stolen from the Miller and Son Orchards farm store sometime between Sunday evening and Monday morning in Dummerston.
The farm is one of the oldest in the state.
The theft marks the second time since 2003 that someone made off with a large amount of syrup from the farm. Authorities said a Putney man was convicted in 2005 of stealing about 75 gallons from the Dwight Miller Farm, putting his own labels on the syrup and selling it.
Owner Read Miller told the Times-Argus that the theft will not change the family farm's tradition of doing business with the honor system.
