GILFORD - Police are searching for suspects in a crime spree that damaged homes, businesses, cars, mailboxes and state-owned heavy equipment.
"This is unusual," said Chief Tony Bean Burpee.
The person(s) responsible targeted several spots around town late Saturday night into Sunday morning, police said.
The damage included broken windows on a garage on Old Lakeshore Rd., a construction backhoe on Potter Hill Rd, the “One Way” sign at the intersection of Cat Path and Cherry Valley Rd. and the “Welcome to Gilford” sign located near the Alton town line. The vandals also targeted heavy equipment parked near Ellacoya State Park that is owned by the Dept. of Transportation.
"It happened overnight so I think it was a couple people who were bored, apparently had nothing better to do, who went on a couple hour crime spree," Bean Burpee said.
The crime spree could lead to felony charges, Bean Burpee said.
Gilford Police are working with surrounding towns and it is believed the vandals may have done damage elsewhere.
Anyone who was targeted or has information about who is responsible should call police.
