The Bennington Banner reports a Pownal man has denied a charge in connection with the sale of scrap metal that police said was stolen from the former Green Mountain Race Track.

Another Pownal man denied charges last month in connection with multiple break-ins spanning more than a year.

Police said Ronald Lee George Jr., 27, broke into and took items from the former racetrack grandstand on Route 7, as well as Winchester's Store and a nearby residence.

In that case, police said George brought 1,600 pounds of metal to George Apkin's & Sons scrap yard in North
