Odd break-ins

One is a home invasion, other is stolen smokes


LACONIA — Police were investigating a pair of unusual but unconnected crimes on Tuesday.

At 1:37 a.m., someone broke into the P&P Mart at 43 Elm St. Police found the front door smashed. A surveillance image appeared to show a lone woman had broken in.

The unusual part was that only a single item appeared to be taken — a pack of cigarettes.

Police Sgt. Chris Noyes said that so far there's no evidence anything else was stolen.

The other case that kept officers busy Tuesday was a report of a home invasion at 3 Lyman St., Unit 1.

Two men with baseball bats forced their way into the residence, but officers are still trying to determine the motive of the break-in.

Noyes said it appears this was not a random act and that the residents know the people who broke in.

No arrests have been made in either case.
