Hooksett police warn of car break-ins, Internet scams
Police Sgt. Janet Bouchard said the vehicle break-ins have occurred in several areas of town. One of the incidents involved a broken car window, though the majority of thefts were the result of unlocked doors, she said.
“Honestly, we’ve been having car break-ins for years,” Bouchard said. “Sometimes they seem to stop for a while and then we get a rash of them.”
Police are also reminding residents to beware of ongoing phone and email scams.
Another popular scam targets the elderly, who receive phone calls claiming that a grandchild, nephew or niece has been arrested in a foreign country and needs money to be wired for bail. Once the money is transferred, it can be difficult, if not impossible to track, police said.
Those with questions or information are encouraged to contact Hooksett Police at 624-1560.
