North Conway Bears Accused of Car Break-Ins
Lock your doors! Hide your food! And put away those bird feeders. The black bears are on the move and allegedly responsible for recent car break-ins. Remember the bears have not been convicted and are merely "creatures of interest" in these crimes.
WMUR-TV is reporting that police are being inundated with reports of car break-ins in North Conway. Windows are smashed, radios ripped from dashboards and car interiors destroyed. Not being the smartest of criminals, they leave behind piles of scat. Put that in an evidence bag!
The bears are coming out of hibernation and looking for food after a long cold winter. So, seriously keep food out your cars and lock the doors. They do open unlocked doors. For more information on what to do if you see a bear, New Hampshire Fish & Game has a do's & dont's list.
