It wasn’t too long ago that former elementary school principal Matthew Laramie made headlines for resigning from his position at a Hanover school for inappropriately using the school credit card. Now, he’s in the news again, but for something completely different. Laramie, along with two other local men, were arrested on Monday in Canaan during an undercover prostitution sting. Police said that in each arrest, the men contacted undercover officers and offered to pay money for various sexual acts.
48-year old Matthew Laramie of Grantham, 55-year old Peter Bloomfield of Enfield, and 49-year old Alan Lane of Sharon Vermont were all arrested and charged with prostitution, which is a Class B Misdemeanor. Lane was also charged with Acts Prohibited – Possession of Oxycodone which is a Class B Felony.
Matt Laramie had resigned from the Bernice A. Ray school in February after allegations arose that he was using his assigned school credit card for unauthorized purchases and a recently released audit report shows that he spent over $34,000 on various trips.
All three men were released on $7,500 personal recognizance bail and are scheduled for arraignment on July 11th in 2nd Circuit Court Lebanon.
