Vermont State Trooper resigns over missing Rolex – Boston News, Weather, Sports

WILLISTON, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont state police soldier who was suspended on pay while detectives investigate missing property, including a $14,000 Rolex watch, from an evidence repository has resigned, state police have confirmed.

Soldier Giancarlo DiGenova, who has been with the state police since 2009, resigned effective Tuesday, a state police spokesman said.

According to court records, detectives are investigating possible counts of grand theft, possession of stolen property, and other charges. No charges were brought.

State police announced DiGenova’s suspension in late December.

A request for a search warrant, approved by a judge on December 22, said the missing property included a Rolex watch and other items, which were seized on November 22 by Burlington narcotics officers and police. DiGenova showed another police officer a Rolex and then had a watch appraised by a Burlington jeweler, according to the search warrant. DiGenova told investigators he bought and returned the watch from a relative.

DiGenova’s attorney, David Sleigh, said last month that a number of police officers had access to the property room and that DiGenova had tried to buy a watch for his son’s 21st birthday and he got one from a cousin, who he later returned.
