$80,000/yr. for a 6th full time cop?

The vote are in, and at least 1,000 people believed the chief when he said he NEEDS a 6th full time officer, and a 12th car for the department that routinely has ON OFFICER ON PATROL ANY GIVEN SHIFT!

Our sleepy little town will now have 6 full time officers, and 10 part time officers. to fight crime in a town THAT ONLY HAD 8 DISPATCHED IN THE ENTIRE MONTH OF FEBRUARY!

For years Chief has tried to get his 6th officer. He likes to cite a 1993 FBI report suggesting guidelines of having 1 Ft officer for each 1,000-1,400 people. he ALWAYS neglects to mention that the FBI ALSO considers 2 PT officers to be the equivalent of 1 FT officer. So by the report he cites Atkinson which has 6,646 people, now has 11 FTE (full time equivalent)officers. This is 1.6 officers per thousand. He also neglects to mention that their report speaks of towns with business districts. It does not deal with bedroom communities like Atkinson.

But, hey, the voters are happy to throw money at this empire building megalomaniac. One officer on patrol per shift, but 12 cars to service this.

As former budget committee chair Mark Acciard pointed out at town meeting a few years ago, The PD in 2008 budgeted 20,000 man-hours. There are 8,360 hours in a year. They had enough money in their budget to schedule 2 officers every shift if they wish. And STILL have TWO full time officers left over. But they continued from that time until now to still maintain one officer per shift on patrol. SO although our bill has grown dramatically we are not getting any more protection than we were in 1998 when we had one officer on patrol every shift.

The problem here is one of management. We have an uneducated, untrained, unappointed police chief, who continually demand more while providing less.

And the voters keep buying it.

Shame on us.

This is the part of Elderly Affairs we can not afford.

If Consentino can electioneer them to get any expensive item he wants at taxpayer expense, perhaps we should eliminate it from the budget.

Let him buy his own EA cars out of his private donation account,from money the elderly donate. If they had to pay for those cars, insurance etc., perhaps they would take a taxi to their appointments.

We need a Town donation account.

MAcciard said...

We HAD a town donation account that was being illegally managed by the selectmen and the chief.

When faced with the prospect of turning it over to the Trustees of the Trust Funds, for LEGAL management of it, Our police chief chose instead to start his own private fund.

I have always wondered, WHY it could not be public, and legal, managed by the Trustees?

Anonymous said...

Don't forget for all that money, we do not get coverage on weekends.

The residents are clueless. With the amount of money that it is costing us
we should be getting coverage 24/7 as the chief likes to say.

I think the BOS should advertise for a new Police Chief and see what happens. Maybe they'll be motivated to get us one. An official one, perhaps with qualifications.

He is in violation of the CoC ordinance by taking that donation and using it to further his political agenda.

No wonder one commenter on an earlier post called the APD the "envy" of New Hampshire. Little crime and an $8O,000
a year pay check would be heaven for a police officer from Salem or Derry. And if you get bored, you can always dabble in Elderly Affairs. All you have to do is bend over and kiss Phil's "a" double "s". Don't worry, the APD will provide the knee pads. That 80K probably doesn't even include benefits and detail work.

It's sad how easily the
taxpayers have been duped.

I'm pretty sure the FT cop isnt recieving 80K. How much does it cost to train a new cop? How much does all his "stuff" cost? How much doe sit cost to make sure he is not a kookie as many of the bloggers? I'm pretty sure the 80K is only the start-up fee to get this new boy in blue up to speed.

To 11:31 am;

Actually that is not true. The FT officers work during the week, and the PT officers fill weekend shifts. Or at least that is how it has worked.

Anonymous said...

The weekends are usually when there is more trouble. Why have the lesser trained officers working then?

MAcciard said...

To 2:35pm;

Actually, as stated in the warrant article the $80,006 is the ANNUAL COST to the town of the officer's pay and benefits.

This is pretty standard for Atkinson. Lt. Baldwin's job cost the taxpayers around $90,000/yr. Even though he had a "salary" of $61,000.

Anonymous said...

Personally, I think the Chief will use the 80K opening to get the anointed one, Bill Baldwin, back.
Billy could use the extra money, I'm sure. Keep your eyes pealed and your ears open. It'll be as easy as buying a new SUV. Before you know it he'll be sitting in a new APD cruiser.

Any purchase over $5,000.00 must go out to bid.

All you people who are thinking that they were for free, think again.

We might have gotten an even better deal, if it's just the chief alone picking out the lucky dealer.

What is Phil getting or giving in exchange for this. Follow the money.

Anonymous said...

How do we even know that he uses donation money toward the purchases? No one ever did the accounting of his requests vs. withdrawals from the donation account. Since he already knows the cost of what he wants, he's been out shopping for the car.

Time to go out to bid and see what happens.

MAcciard said...

same thing with turning the old cruisers in.

I demonstrated two years ago at town meeting that we could get $1,700- $3,500 per car on EBAY, or Cars.com, instead of the $300- $800 trade in allowance That the town gets when Phil trades them in.

Don't forget, the car that was in such bad shape it couldn't be driven, was bought the next day by his son, and used as a daily driver.

Anonymous said...

Mark...

I know nothing about the specific condition of the former police car bought by Phil's son.

But, I do think it plausible that a police car could be in such a condition that it should be retired from active public safety service yet still have enough life left to become someone's "daily driver".

On the face of the facts cited, I cannot conclude there were improprieties. However, selling any car that runs and can be instected for less than $1,500 is getting less than full value. Isn't this the Selectmen's failure?

Anonymous said...

He's buying and selling town equipment at will. He is the problem.

No one wants to stand up to him because he is so unpleasant to deal with. They are waiting for nature to run it's course and that is the wrong plan for the town.

MAcciard said...

To 12:51pm. The car in question was "the details car" It was a 1999 ford crown vic. with 160,000 miles. phil used to claim it could not be used for patrols because it had "over 100,000 miles on it".

It was traded in to Irwin Ford. irwin gave him $300 in trade, His son bought it the next day for $450. And used it daily.

The point was, I had a petition warrant article for the town to dispose of all vehicles, or capital equipment on Ebay, or cars. com. to maximize taxpayer value.

I had with me at the meeting 17 cruisers for sale on those 2 sites, years ranging from 1996- 2001. ALL over 200,000 miles. prices ranging from $1728- $3744.

Phil and Jack Sapia changed the article at town meeting to dispose of by sale or trade.

Anonymous said...

However they dispose of the car, it is not up to the PD to do it. This is capital equipment and it needs to be bought and sold in public and at the best price.

Burned body found in Atkinson
The Eagle Tribune Mon Mar 19, 2012, 04:35 PM EDT


ATKINSON — Local and state police are investigating the discovery on a body in the woods near Pentucket Court.

A woman out walking this afternoon discovered the body, which was burned, and called police, Chief Philip Consentino said.

The state police major crimes unit will be on the scene soon.

Consentino said there was nothing more he could say at this point.

It is good that he said he can not say any thing about the circumstances including the ID of the body and who may be a suspect. The State Police are investigating the crime and not the APD . If the State Police give any information out it should be to the public and not to the chief. You know all to well he would take advantage of leaking the information to make himself look like a hero crime solver only to screw up the case. JMHO

As an out-of-state observer, are your police officers union? If yes, then you might want to look at your pension costs; because that is why f/t police officers are required...nothing to do with crime; but a lot to do with taxpayer-financed, 100% of each officer's pensions.

Taxpayer's support of 100% of union pensions is a hard, but necessary lesson.. to correct; but unless you enjoy bankruptcy, it is necessary!

Hampstead wins $308,750 for new tanker
By Cara Hogan

HAMPSTEAD — The fire department is buying a new tanker truck for $325,000, but it's only costing taxpayers $16,250.

The department just found out it has been awarded a $308,750 federal Homeland Security grant to buy the truck, which will replace its existing tanker, now 27 years old.

Fire Chief Michael Carrier got the good news about the Assistance to Firefighters grant on Wednesday.

"We were very fortunate," he said. "We intend to purchase a 3,000-gallon water tanker, which gives us the ability to bring water with us to an incident. It feeds our other trucks the water necessary to put out fires or mitigate hazmat incidents."

Only a small portion of Hampstead has water hydrants, so it's necessary to bring water to fires, he said.

"This is our oldest piece of equipment in the department," Carrier said of the tanker. "It's the older type model with an open cab and that's been a firefighter safety issue throughout the country. The risk is falling out or off of the truck into the open road, because there's no doors to close you in."

The grant is a 95-5 split, with the town responsible for a 5 percent share, or $16,250. Voters approved spending that amount in a warrant article at Town Meeting March 13.

"The warrant article allows us to utilize the fire department's capital reserve fund to pay for our 5 percent share in the event we got the grant," he said. "And we did."

The goal of the grant is to help firefighters and first responders pay for critical equipment, protective gear, training and emergency vehicles, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In 2011, Congress appropriated $404 million for the grants that will be awarded through September. Applications are evaluated based on the project, financial need and long-term benefits of the grant.

Hampstead was one of thousands of departments selected nationwide for the competitive grant, according to U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH, who supported Hampstead's bid for the grant.

"In order to perform their jobs effectively, firefighters must have safe equipment," Shaheen said. "This grant will allow Hampstead Fire Department to replace an aging, unsafe truck with a new, more reliable one that will help the department maximize its fire fighting potential and keep the citizens of Hampstead safe."

Anonymous said...

My question is: Why hasn't the Atkinson Fire Department applied or received any grants from Homeland Security? This is the 3rd grant that the Hampstead Fire Department has received, and as far as I know the Atkinson Department stands at 0.

Anonymous said...

What are you talking about? They don't mind having the Atkinson taxpayers buy the trucks. If they wanted to get a grant, they'd get one.

Anonymous said...

I believe the responsibility for seeking grants falls within the Selectmen's office. And I believe the Town Administrator and Secretary would be specifically tasked to pursue grant money as one of their duties.

It is not fair to chastise our AFD volunteers for this failing, if it even is a failing.

Anonymous said...

Atkinson first hired a TA with the promise he would pay for himself with the grants he applies for. TA is now paid over 60k and not one grant has be aguired.

The TA position was just another trick by the town to up our taxes.

So much for the TA doing his job. Town doesn't need (or ever needed) a TA. Get rid of him and save money.

I thought the BOS did away with the secretary position when they got the TA. Now she is the assessing clerk. Anyone?

Macciard said...

No it was installed under the Fire Chiefs direction, and has been operating flawlessly.

The closet incident was police communication equipment ordered on a Plaistow HS grant. $9,000 in equipment destined for mounting "on a tower behind the fire station in atkinson", according to the chief's documentation.

The problem is that he never got his tower passed, and the equipment went into a storage unit in Plaistow for four years, even though IT WAS CERTIFIED TO HOMELAND SECURITY AS HAVING BEEN INSTALLED!

Anonymous said...

If the equipment is still in storage and as been said to have been installed then the agency that gave it to the town[s] should be notified. The due process of the fraud if brought forward should be enough to get rid of the Conman once and for all. So whats a few more dollars in litigation that could end this on going constant suing with court, lawyers, and insurance costs for the town because of his antics?

They gave some of it to the TRHS and the rest is MIA.

Then why not report it to them? I as well as the many others who wish to remain anonymous would well encourage those who have made themselves identifiable could be the ones that should do it. Another option is for the selectmen to do this as it is their job to do as the representatives of the town. These mentioned things can not be that misunderstood can they ,or am I wrong.

Plaistow voters say no to MBTA layover station

By Cara Hogan chogan@eagletribune.com

PLAISTOW — The majority of voters do not want a Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority layover station in town and now town leaders know it.

A citizen petition warrant article stating residents do not want the layover station passed yesterday, 619-308, with 227 residents asking for more information.

Town leaders want to bring an MBTA commuter rail to Plaistow, with a layover station proposed near the Atkinson town line. But residents opposed to the project cited noise and pollutions problems in towns with similar facilities.

Because of these concerns, resident Audrey Peck drafted the petition warrant article and spent all day waving signs outside Pollard School yesterday. She said she was thrilled the article passed.

"The Plaistow people have spoken," she said. "We just hope the selectmen will listen."

Atkinson resident Robert Clarke, chairman of the Railroad Investigatory Committee, came to support the citizen's petition against the MBTA layover station, which would affect Atkinson as well.

"We came here to help and educate Plaistow voters about the dangers of the layover station," Clarke said. "We care about this so much that we're here."

Anonymous said...

To 1:13 , Are you the one and an assumed person who has taken the time to single out the Plaistow T.M. as the driving force of the train issue? I'd like to point out to you or the assumed person having said that the following--- The town had acted some 10 or more years ago to seek the train stop for not only Plaistow but for the areas towns. The work put into this project was well before The Town Manager came to Plaistow. The members of the committee were in place far before he became Town Manager. The Town Manager was doing his job representing the town and its area peoples whether you both believe that or not. You or the assumed other person shouldn't lay blame on him for representing the people of Plaistow due to the aforementioned reasons. If I may ,where were you and the assumed person were when these plans of the train station were being made? Are you or the other assumed person that young not to have heard of the hopeful over all plan to become a reality or are you and the assumed person new to the N.H. scene? You and the assumed person seem to forget that the over night engine site could have been located in a northerly location . If it were to be in the train track area of northern Route 125 it could have served the present industrial parks and future industrial business needs . Your and the assumed person have bitten off your noses for your own selfish needs and not to the communities that would have been of benefit of the railroad needs of our common local area. Did you or the assumed person think of the needs for everyones commuting to and out of the area to work or reach places of need before you made your commentaries? I think not!! I suggest the rethinking of your selfishness and think of the peoples needs for the future of the overall area with its need for expansion for residential and future employment opportunities. You both have a right to your opinions but when you gloat on the work of so many involved in the past years I can not but say where were you in those past years???????? JMHO

I forgot to add and say what about the cost and time it took for those people involved in the time spent in trying to get the train stop and engine over night to become a real happening. In place of your probable not want to do so I'll say thank you to them for their 10 or more years of time and expense in the project of well intended betterment for the local communities and its commuters whether it be now and in the future.

EXACTLY WHY do you wish to remain anonymous?

Anonymous said...

For a very intelligent man you ask a very foolish question of me. Because you asked I'll pose a question to you. Why is it with all the trouble the Conman has caused the town and you, most of all you, personally that you who have cause to seek justice hasn't done so? I only am referring to the equipment lie to the agency and not about the other court actions that have taken place. I'm writing about the installation that never has taken place and is fraud. If you and other offended people that are not anonymous could get any thing moving on this matter that the Conman is or has done illegally then I'd think you'd be the one to spearhead the action. I have no axe to grind with you on your question but I'd have thought that some one else would be asking the question of why I would prefer to stay anonymous rather than you. I know its pretty obvious why when you and others have stated that the Conman and his henchmen have caused nothing but trouble for you and others with his and his henchmens known actions.

Ok. I get that you are defending the TM of Plaistow.

This will not benefit the Town of Plaistow or the surrounding Towns, mainly Atkinson, whose residents and property owners will bear the bunt of tis if it happens.

So it could have been located north, but now it isn't to be located north.

So, back to reality. Atkinson opposes this layover station and you AND the other assumed person ought to get with the current reality of the proposed, opposed project.

The Conman and his missing equipment are known to the State authorities and they DO NOT CARE.

It IS fraud, known fraud. The real question is, who else is involved? Everyone who has gone along with the game while issue after issue has been raised and ignored by those who have done nothing while being in a position to do so.

Why? Evidently, they have something to lose bigger than fraud.

I suspected the reason, and my reason for asking the question was to get you to state it.

The more people who will openly admit, that they fear retribution from Atkinson's Chief Law ENFORCEMENT officer, the less retribution there will be, because the less he will be able to duck under the skirts of the elderly to deflect anger from his abuses as chief.

Believe me, I know full well the price to be paid for speaking the TRUTH about our chief's immoral, and sometimes illegal actions. And the more people who do it, the harder it will be for him to continue his practice of lying to the public claiming that we "have a vendetta" due to tickets he has given us.

And thank you for the intelligence compliment.

I thank you for the compliment and all of what you openly have stated in your response. // Again, I do hope that the others who were abused will get to speak to you or call on you to join together in the fight to remove the Conman. The success of having of being able to have done so would make the town a far better place to live in w/o the Conmans influences in all the regards of his past wrongfulness . // The well known being the joke municipality of our state alone would be just one of pleasures of his removal due to his past wacky actions. // It isn't just the tickets given out it is the way he and his department give out the lack of criminal justice via arrests of criminal activities w/i the town. When will the selectmen board take action on him to remove him from the police and or both the police and elderly affairs departments? // His police chief status is not w/i the recognition of modern state and towns acceptance for being a police chief in our modern day times. // If his family , who work in the police department, were at all caring for him they would go beyond insisting that he retire before he gets thrown off and has the probable loss of his retirement rights. // He has cost the town enough with his self serving fools way of doing things and it is now the time to get him away from being so costly to the town. // Has anyone asked if he has a mental or physical problem for having done so much wrong that would attribute to his past wrongfulness? Where is and are the selectmen in all this ? It is their job to insure the well being of the town and its residents from all that the past have and has let him get away with. // I'm upset with the increase of taxes and its costs due to his ways of conducting himself in all the offices he was involved in now and in the past. // I would ask the state or its agencies to investigate this again and insist they do. After all we wouldn't want to not have justice for the town or even the Conman .

If the railroad issue becomes a reality then the wishes for work of those who wish to commute and to other places is not of worthless thought. Who really pays the burden of taxes? The people who work out of town. There are some ,not many , who in town would be able to go to the destinations they need to work or to see and do other things and to otherwise anticipitate in out side the town. It can bring opportunity for the areas region and for the town of Plaistow that has the ROUTE 125 GOING through it. You who are residents of our town go there to shop and come back to town knowing there is no impact to our town where we have no real commercial business . That alone should make us aware that we can keep our town small. We can still be, as we are now quite of heavy traffic and still be a bed room community as it was before we had the rail issue now before us . Who cares if the over night engines are still in Haverhill area so long as they are in another location not in Atkinson Plaistow proper? Time goes on and so does time make things better if you allow it to do it w/o the less thought of what is best for the area communities.

Train Lovers (Yes I mean you, Tim Moore and Merilyn Senter)

There are some lowlands between Plaistow and East Kingston. They're right along the rail line, off in no-mans-land. There are few roads, houses and people out there. I think I've even seen a bar out there. Or maybe the watering hole was between Exeter and East Kingston. This area would be a perfect spot for a layover. My personal opinion is, the deal as it exists now has been set up to help the current owner of the former Westville Homes site and the folks in Bradford. And, to hell with the NH-ites. I'd check who the owner is and his political connections. There are so many back scratchers around here some folks are getting pretty raw on the backside. You can tell. They're kind of hunched over and moan.

However, the ideal solution would be skip the layover / station entirely and pay down a portion of the federal debt with the money saved. If every city and town in the country gave up something, we could pay it down. There's no demand for this. It's a waste.
I commute by car to work in Massachusetts. It takes 1 1/4 hour one way. I could take the train but it would take 2 3/4 hours one way with all the line transfers in Boston and a 1 mile walk at the end.

Stop demanding that your kids and grandkids pay for your transportation. Get up off your ass and catch the train in Exeter or Haverhill. How lazy can you get?

6:18PM , You left out a few things in your attempt to sway us all. 1. safety factors of your driving to and from work for the 1 1/4 hours traveling time each way. 2.the cost in wear and tear of your transporting m/v. 3. the cost of fuel and polluting the air. 4. the traffic tie ups due to accidents. 5. if you were to take the train you'd be paying for a ticket do it at a cheaper price. .. I say this because of the things already mentioned and that you can do some thing to take up your time while on the train ex. computer ,reading paper , watching the places you go by while doing nothing,etc . 6. trains may stop often but for the 15 minutes you claim is the time of both modes traveling difference it should be well worth the relaxing ride to work being more refreshed in getting there. You should consider the fact that trains have far fewer accidents than do over the road traveling. 7. how often do you see m/vs skid and cause accidents or are at the side of the road because of a skidding accident? trains ride on rails safely and self plow the trains rail way they travel on. I'm of the opinion your just one of those nimby people that want to be assured the overnight engine stop is not in your area . Actually I can agree with you knowing there are other places for it further up the rail line for use by the manafacturing ,sand and gravel business's and industrial parks that are now in existence . The local area towns should be welcoming the rail use capabilities for employment,etc. That is better than having nothing at all to support the areas many needs for lower taxes and easier out of town traveling . jmho

Just becaise he drives an hour plus does not mean everyone has to. But you can drive to Haverhill. If that is still a concern then set up a buss rout where you are picked up at shaws and taken to the train. Free parking, no excess driving, and oh ya...saves money on using existing infrastructure.

To 9:57, I was of the understanding that the present parking area in Plaistows rail station could be expanded or have a parking garage built on it that would be enough for commuting needs. Why go to Haverhill to park and ride on the train when you could get on in Plaistow . Less traveling mileage and the wear and tear on the m/v even if the train stops in Haverhill or not. I think that we all should scrutinize the plans before making any decisions on the rail stop and the not well received engine overnight parking . Personally I want the Plaistow rail stop. If there is a place that doesn't bother any one for the over night engine stop I'd welcome that as well. If not then it stays in Bradford until it can be removed to another location.

How 'bout it Mr Acciard? You're still paying taxes in Atkinson, right? And from what I've heard you could vote in Atkinson if you wanted to. All you have to do is state that your intention is to return to town. I believe it's the law in NH, though I haven't searched the RSAs for it yet. Where's Curt Springer when you really need him?

If LaSalle picks his successor then we'll be saddled with another spend and spend liberal. And, LaSalle's choosing seems to be the current rule. Where the "he" double "l" was Bill Baldwin? What a useless school board chairman he was. Since he failed to lead then the taxpayers should. And I'm not kidding about physically living in one location and voting in another.
NH has a long history of extending residency to folks temporarily out-of-town, like students and the military. I'm not making this up, however it's just an observation. I'm at work and I don't have time to check the RSAs, but I believe all you have to do is

Whoo Whoo!

I may be paranoid, but I think there is something way bigger behind the train layover. If Plaistow will simply agree to take the Train Layover off Bradford's hands then Haverhill will let Plaistow tie into their water and sewer systems when Plaistow gets around to installing the pipes up RT 125. Plaistow will screw any and all to get what it wants. They couldn't care less about their own residents let alone the residents of Bryant Woods in Atkinson.

There are Haverhill and Plaistow Planners living right in Bryant Woods. What's your explaination?

1:00PM, The railroad has been here and every where it goes through before you and me took our first breathe of life. If you moved here or were raised here you knew the railroad was here and the engines blow their whistles. You can't say that you can't move to a location that the railroad isn't heard because you can. If you moved here you had to notice the railroad came by the towns of Plaistow and Atkinson. A smart person who is buying or renting a home looks into all the conveinant aspects of the area before relocating . What you want are these things but do not accept you have to bend some and accept things for what they are. From what you've said I think your another nimby who selfishly wants there way and for no one else. Sorry but your railroad cries of "grief" do not float my boat to be swayed by you a nimby.

Haverhill has its water sources but they already said they can not give Plaistow the water except for the connection at the town/city line. They also said they wouldn't because of the future expansion of residences and business in their city. Then and only then will they open the water gate for an or some emergency . I'll ask you a question-- how would the Haverhill water get to the Plaistow homes and business's when the only water lines in Plaistow are for fire suppression? The water lines are limited to the Route 125 area and are under piece meal installation from year to year. It will be years before they get to all of the town. You and I will never see the non use of well water in our life times.

Would you do the same as you already did by moving again with out checking to see if the railroad is near by? Did you see the tax rate, school ratings, nearness of house hold needs, town services, etc.? I think you would check these things unless your really dumb and just plain stupid. You chose to live where you now do and that is to bad for you because of your failing to look into things before you moved here.

NIMBY THIS!

I used to live in Bradford a long long time ago. I'd used to jump back and forth over the MA/NH border to avoid the bill collectors. Just joking! The apartment house was on Verndale Street, right next to the current train layover. For me it was a breeze. I was doing physical labor at the time and within 2 weeks I could no longer hear the freight trains barrelling through at night. I had tuned them out. I don't even remember any diesel fumes or engines humming of note,
Maybe the wind was blowing it in the opposite direction. Sure there was opposition back then, but not as much as today. If you check out the area you will discover that many more homes have been built since the layover was established. These folks have no right to complain. They should have done more research on the Bradford neighborhood, before they bought their homes. I have no sympathy for them. In fact I personally think the rulers in Haverhill should tell these complainers in Bradford to shut up. The MBTA is broke and the layover is staying right where it is. The real NIMBYs live in Bradford, down by the tracks. If they don't like it they can sell their homes and move to Atkinson.

Police: Atkinson burglaries may be fueled by drugs
By Cara Hogan
chogan@eagletribune.com

ATKINSON — There have been two burglaries in the past two weeks in town and police warn there may be more.

Police responded to a break-in at a home on Crown Hill Road just before noon Friday, Sgt. Patrick Caggiano said.

"The home is in a secluded area of town and was entered through a rear door, which was unlocked," he said. "They stole an undetermined amount of jewelry, including a set of diamond earrings, a white gold necklace. An iPad and computer were also stolen."

On March 19, thieves broke through the back door of a home on Devonshire Road.

"Jewelry was also stolen, but we don't know the value," Caggiano said. "The two crimes are related and they also coincide with the burglary spree we had throughout last summer and fall."

Last year, there were 13 break-ins, most during the summer and fall. Electronics and jewelry were stolen in many of those burglaries.

"I think drugs are fueling the burglaries and the high price of gold continues to make jewelry a large target," Caggiano said. "Jewelry is easy to conceal and dispose of."

Police Chief Philip Consentino said officers are on the lookout for daytime burglars.

"We've got extra patrols out there and it's just become being in the right place at the right time," he said. "We've got extra patrols for the sole purpose of checking the neighborhoods during the day."

Caggiano asked residents to be especially vigilant and report suspicious activity.

"With the warm weather coming, always lock doors and windows," he said. "If people see anything suspicious, write down as much information as they can. Don't approach, but try to obtain license plates and vehicle descriptions."

Call the Atkinson police at 362-4001 with any information about a crime.

I'll pose my last question to you . Would you accept the rail service just as long as the overnight engine location stays in Bradford or further up the rail line some where?

Homes near the Bradford layover are probably underwater. So, how do the owners deal with it. They complain to the City of Haverhill, the State of Mass and the MBTA and try to force the layover over the line into NH. If they succeed, their home values will rise and if they're lucky they might resurface. And what happens to us poor souls in Westville and Atkinson Depot? Our home values drop. This is what they're after and there are plenty of silly folks in NH that are willing to help, just as long as the layover doesn't end up in THEIR backyard.
