UPDATE: Belmont continues to see BB gun damage, police looking for answers and culprits
BELMONT- As of early November, Belmont has received numerous counts of damage and vandalism attributed to BB guns. The town has received eight more counts just this week and residents and business owners want answers.
Belmont officers are following up on leads and reviewing available video surveillance from homes and businesses.
Aside from vandalism, the town is also worried about public safety.
With a portion of New Hampshire residents exercising their legal right to conceal carry, whoever is randomly pointing a weapon (BB gun or not) out of a vehicle at homes and vehicles, is creating an exceedingly dangerous situation for themselves and others.
This damage and vandalism has cost Belmont thousands of dollars in residential and commercial damage.
Belmont police urge anyone with information in identifying the culprit(s) to contact them at (603) 267-8350.
