New wave of vandalism hits Carlisle over weekend
Two separate groups targeted Carlisle last weekend and damaged a total of 8 mailboxes and 4 cars. Three of the cars had windows smashed. Police Chief David Galvin said one of the groups responsible has been identified and as a result 3 Carlisle teenagers, all under 17, will be summonsed to the District Court in Concord to appear before a juvenile judge.
The first reported incident was on Thursday night, with most occurring Friday night and one early Saturday morning. Galvin said that in every case the police heard of the vandalism after the fact: no one called immediately to report a loud noise or the sound of a car driving away. Some residents recalled hearing noises but none had investigated them. Galvin urged residents to report any suspicious behavior or event when it occurs.
