LACONIA – Police are investigating two attempted burglaries at the Laconia Antique Center at 601 Main St.
Store owner Charlie St. Clair said yesterday that the first attempt happened at 4:15 a.m. on Wednesday morning and the second attempt happened sometime after 2 a.m. yesterday.
In both cases, St. Clair said the attempted burglaries involved someone smashing out the window in the steel door on the Hanover Street side of the building.
"I think the first night the hole was too small," said St. Clair who said his cameras captured images of the suspect "wailing" on the door with something in his or her hand.
He said he hasn't completely finished reviewing the footage of the second attempt but knows it happened after 2 a.m. He said police are reviewing all the footage.
He said the damage to the glass in the door was greater the second time so he thinks someone or something interrupted the would-be burglar.
St. Clair said he has no idea if it was the same person who made the attempts to get into his store.
