Theft mars Halloween spirit in Epping
The creepy Halloween display near a mailbox in front of a residence on Hamilton Drive disappeared last week.
The thief also swiped a cornstalk, leaving behind a second cornstalk and the fake spider webs on the house.
“They’ve never bothered anything, and this year we didn’t do as much and they took what we had. It’s frustrating,” she said.
“This time of year brings out this type of element. Fortunately, this is the first theft,” Epping police Capt. Jason Newman said.
“Of course we noticed the police come and the kids are wondering why strangers are coming in the night and stealing stuff. It’s a hard thing to explain and the kids worry,” said one Hamilton Drive neighbor.
The town of Chester is known for its displays, with more than 200 scarecrows located around town to raise money for the Chester Historical Society.
“In general people are stopping and taking pictures and are really enjoying them,” he said of the scarecrows, one of which is a police officer in a cruiser in front of the police department.
“My advice would be for people to bring their decorations in and not leave them out overnight. Typically it’s teens and twenty-somethings out drinking that find opportunity to take the stuff if they’re out driving by late at night,” he said.Disappearing decorations haven’t been a problem in Rye either, but Police Chief Kevin Walsh stressed the importance of keeping the displays in a location where there’s a light always shining on them or a motion light.Newman said lights are probably the best deterrent.
