Police have arrested a 30-year-old Vermont man who they say attempted to rob a credit union branch's night deposit box by slamming into it with a tractor.

The Rutland Herald reports Chase Siliski will be arraigned in Rutland criminal court in May on charges of felony grand larceny, felony attempted grand larceny and a misdemeanor count of unlawful mischief.

Police say Fair Haven Rescue Squad members observed Siliski repeatedly ramming the night deposit box of the Green Mountain Credit Union's Cold River Road branch in November.

The Proctor man allegedly fled the scene in the tractor and ran into the woods near the Adele Stanley apartment complex in Rutland. He was apprehended on April 10.

Siliski could not be reached for comment.
