    Default Recent Thefts in New Hampshire Sugarhouses

    I just received this bulletin from the New Hampshire Maple Producers Association and thought I would pass it along:

    - UNLOCKED SUGAR HOUSES -

    It has been reported that there has been equipment stolen in an around
    Grafton County sugarhouses on several occasions. This has happened as far south
    as
    Brattleboro, VT as well. Different items have been taken, even a Steam-a-way.
    Please call Troop F of the NH State Police 271-1170 if you have any
    information regarding this.

    BE AWARE, AN UNLOCKED SUGAR HOUSE IS AN INVITATION FOR THIEVES!

    I keep mine locked but at this time of year I do have some things outside the sugarhouse. I have never had a problem yet but will try to secure things better. Thanks for the heads up. I sure hope they catch those who are stealing the maple equip. I'll bet you they are not producers but just lazy thugs who see a quick buck and do not even know what they are taking nor it's true value. Might even be scrapping it, i hear scrap is real high lately. Personally I can't stand anyone who is not honest and I conduct all of my business that way.
