Bear Spotted by Merrimack Neighborhood Watch

I wanted to share some pictures that were sent to me by a member of one of our Neighborhood Crime Watch members and its just a good reminder for all of us. This is the time of year when the Bear’s are hungry and looking for a lot of food!!!!!!!

As requested by Fish & Game, we should be taking down bird feeders so that the Bear’s are not attracted to your backyards looking for food. The birds do not NEED your assistance with food and there is plenty of food for them this time of year.

As cute as the Bear’s look, they also have their little CUBS with them and encountering them could be dangerous for everyone.mThank you all for supporting and using good judgment with our wildlife.




Teens Robbed of I-pod/Cell Phone


MANCHESTER, NH- On Monday, February 11, 2013, at about 6:30 PM, Manchester Police responded to a Clay Street address for a report of a robbery.  On arrival, they met with two 16 year old Manchester teens who reported they had been the victims of a robbery a short time earlier on Somerville Street, near Belmont Street.


According to the boys, they were walking in the area when they were approached by two men, one of whom demanded their belongings, indicating his companion had a gun, although no gun was observed.


One of the boys surrendered his I-pod Nano and Galaxy S3 cell phone and the men left.  They were last seen leaving the area as passengers in an older, dark colored 4-door sedan operated by a third individual who was possibly wearing a red sweatshirt.


The first suspect was described as a white male in his forties, about 6’3” tall with a slender build and dark “stubble” on his face.  He was last seen wearing a dark colored vest and a green “beanie” style hat.  The second man, alleged to have possessed a gun, was described as a clean-shaven white male in his forties with an average height and build.  He was last seen wearing a camouflage shirt and khaki pants.


Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Manchester Police Department at 668-8711.  Anonymous tips for cash rewards can be made through Manchester Crimeline at 624-4040 or online at
