Bears suspected in New Hampshire car break-insMay 10, 2014 @ 7:40 pm
NORTH CONWAY, N.H. (AP) -- Wildlife officials in New Hampshire believe a bear is to blame for a series of recent car break-ins.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says several cars have been broken into over the last few weeks in the same North Conway neighborhood. Officials say the likely culprit is a bear looking for food.
Terry Leavitt tells WMUR-TV (http://bit.ly/1ohNvNO ) the radio was pulled out of her dashboard. The interior was ripped apart and a window was smashed. Other residents also reported similar damage.
Conway police Sgt. George Walker says it's a common occurrence this time of year as bears stop hibernating and search for food. And the suspect description is always the same: "black and furry."
