Prosecutor: Trooper faces missing evidence investigation

State Police confirm Roos was temporarily relieved of duty

January 8, 2019

DERBY, Vt. (AP) A Vermont county prosecutor says a state trooper is under investigation in connection with a report of missing evidence.

According to records, Derby-based Sgt. David Roos was placed on paid leave in December without explanation. The Caledonian-Record reports the Orleans County State's Attorney's Office informed all county attorneys of the investigation on Monday.

Roos, reached by phone Tuesday, said he was unable to provide any information.

State's Attorney Jennifer Barrett disclosed the allegations by citing the U.S. Supreme Court decision "Brady v. Maryland," which requires prosecutors to turn over all evidence that may exonerate a defendant, including information about credibility.

State Police confirm Roos was temporarily relieved of duty, Dec. 5, but had no further comment.
