Candia police probe second Chester Turnpike burglary
Police Chief Michael McGillen said the most recent burglary occurred Thursday.
“The homeowners left the house around 11:30 (a.m.) and returned shortly after 2 that afternoon to find their side door had been forced open,” he said. “There were a number of valuables taken, and this is similar to a number of crimes that we have seen in Manchester and some other nearby communities. The items they’re taking produce quick money. It’s an easy turnaround for them.”
Although the investigation has produced no significant leads, McGillen said one resident noticed a suspicious red Dodge pickup truck that may have been driven by a female in the neighborhood the previous day. He said it’s unknown if the truck or driver is associated with the crime.
Recently, Candia Police received a break in a case they had been investigating since November, which involved six guns stolen during a residential burglary on the same road.
In addition to the recent burglaries on Chester Turnpike, McGillen said a number of mailboxes were vandalized Thursday night. He said he doesn’t believe the crimes are connected.
