If anyone has seen Breer or notices any suspicious activity they are asked to contact the Vermont State Police Middlesex barracks 802-229-9191. So far troopers have been investigating a couple of dozen leads, but none have been successful in capturing Breer. Lt. Marc Thomas said he is hoping Breer will come forward and there will be a peaceful resolution. Thomas asks residents of the Cabot, Calais and Woodbury areas to lock their doors and be aware of their surroundings as Breer has a history of violent behavior.
Police are looking for Breer, 42, of Calais, who was convicted of burglary and kidnapping a 61-year-old woman in Barre more than a decade ago.
Breer was also accused of raping the woman, but a jury acquitted him on that charge. Breer had also been charged with raping a woman in 1990 but he was acquitted on that charge as well.
Breer was released from prison less than two years ago and is considered dangerous.
An arrest warrant was issued Wednesday on charges of violating probation, domestic assault, unlawful restraint and operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent.
State police believe Breer may be in the Woodbury or Calais area, where he was last known to be living. He may also be in the Cabot area, according to a state police news release.
