John W. Schumann is back in the news on multiple charges, including fentanyl trafficking. Schumann, 41, failed to appear in Caledonia Superior Court on Monday, and Judge Justin P. Jiron issued an arrest warrant with $500 bail. Schumann has been charged by the Caledonia County State’s Attorney’s Office with felony fentanyl trafficking and misdemeanor charges of violating conditions of release and petit larceny. St. Johnsbury Police said Schumann violated his curfew put in place by the court, stole from a motor vehicle on Harrison Avenue in St. Johnsbury, and had in his possession 83.2 milligrams of fentanyl. During an alleged crime spree, Schumann is also accused of breaking into and stealing items from a St. Johnsbury residence and several cars around town. Schumann is being charged as a habitual offender by the state and could face a sentence of up to life in prison.
