Update from RPD: Recent Burglaries

The Town of Rollinsford is now being targeted for burglaries. In two weeks there have been 3: Rollins Road, Somersworth Road, & Beccaris Drive. Additionally we have received 2 reports of someone going to a home late at night, ringing the doorbell and then fleeing: Somersworth Road and Heritage Drive.

We have been diligent in stopping people and vehicles who appear to be out of place. We ask that you report ANY unusual activity to us immediately.

If you have a home surveillance system and have video of anything unusual around your home or the road in front of your home, we ask that you forward it to Chief Robert Ducharme at rducharme@rollinsfordpolice.org.

Thank you.
