Bulldozer Barrels Into Police Station

‘A man stole a bulldozer from a construction site and slammed into the Troy police station early Friday morning, police said.

Police said Stanley Burt, 34, stole a bulldozer, drove it up a road in Troy, maneuvered behind Town Hall and crashed it into the police department.

“Mr. Burt drove the bulldozer into the police station, backed up, drove it in again, backed up and hit it a final time,” Sgt. David Griffin said.

The entranceway and front wall of the building were destroyed, the power was out and some computers were damaged, police said. No one was in the building, and an officer patrolling the area saw him in the act, police said.

“Mr. Burt had a number of contacts with the Troy Police Department,” Griffin said. “We believe he’s venting his anger.”‘
