VT. Police believe a prison escapee is desperate for cash and may be responsible for a robbery earlier this week.
Monday night, a man entered the Champlain Farms store at the corner of Williston Road and Airport Drive in South Burlington. The robber went behind the counter, grabbed the female clerk and forced her to open the cash register. He grabbed money and took off.
Police have identified the robber as Richard Barnier, 42. He was serving time at the South Burlington jail, but was let out on a work search permit last Friday and didn't come back. Barnier has been charged in the past with violent crimes using a knife and he is considered dangerous. If you see Barnier, do not approach him; call police immediately. A reward is being offered for information that leads to his whereabouts and capture. If you have information on Richard Barnier call South Burlington Police or Crimestoppers.

INSPECTOR'S NOTE: Gee who would have thought a prisoner considered dangerous and having past charges of violent crime with a knife wouldn't come back to jail from work?
