Delaware Man Charged for Fishing Violations
Vermont State Game Wardens arrested Norman L. Katrobos, 33, of Millsboro, Delaware Sunday morning, December 29, for fishing under criminal license revocation for the second time in three days.
Katrobos was observed ice fishing at Lake Morey in Fairlee on Friday, December 27, and arrested by wardens for fishing while under revocation. His privilege to hunt, fish and trap are currently revoked in Vermont as a result of previous fishing violations.
Wardens received information that Katrobos continued to ice fish on Saturday with a group of other fishermen, even though he had been arrested less than 24 hours earlier for fishing after his license had been revoked. On Sunday, wardens located Katrobos actively fishing through the ice on Fairfield Pond in Fairfield. Wardens contacted Katrobos and seized all his fish and fishing gear, and arrested Katrobos.
Katrobos admitted to catching fish all three days and was observed by wardens catching and keeping fish on Friday and Sunday. He was transported to the Vermont State Police barracks in St. Albans where he was fingerprinted and photographed.
Katrobos has been cited to appear in Orange and Franklin County Superior Courts in February, 2020. If convicted of both charges Katrobos could face up to 120 days in jail, be fined up to $1,000 and lose his privilege to hunt, fish and trap in Vermont for three years and pay $1,300 in restitution.
