Local business offering $500 reward for information

HOOKSETT, N.H. — Police are warning residents and business owners in Hooksett after a recent streak of criminal mischief throughout the town.

Since late December, police have responded to reports of more than two dozen cases of broken windows at businesses and personal vehicles in parking lots and in driveways along Hooksett Road.

Police believe the person responsible is shooting with an airsoft or pellet gun.

In one of the most recent cases, someone shot the back window of a moving car carrying a child in the back seat. The child was not hurt in the incident, police say.

Businesses that have been randomly targeted include Tire Warehouse, Oompa-Loompa Candies, Hooksett Road Auto Repair, Green’s Marine, Under the Hood Services, State of the Art Storage, American Fence and Auto Wholesalers.

The owner of the Hooksett Tire Warehouse has just announced they are offering a $500 cash reward for any valuable information leading to an arrest and conviction.

Officials say these crimes are taking place at all hours of the day and night.

Anyone with information should contact police.
