BURLINGTON, Vt. - An arrest warrant has been issued for a Colchester man after he failed to show up to court Tuesday morning.

55-year old Patrick Rooney was scheduled to be arraigned on two new charges. He is accused of stealing and later selling a nearly 200 year old document from the Fletcher Free Library in Burlington.

This is in addition to similar charges we told you about last month. He pleaded not guilty then.

His bond is set at $5,000. He could face up to one year in prison for these new charges.
