Derry News

---- — Blowin’ in the wind

Londonderry police were called to Old Derry Road last week for a potentially frightening situation.

The caller told police someone was trying to break into the house.

Three officers raced to the scene and found the culprit; the storm door was blowing in the wind.

Faith in tow

On Good Friday, a tow truck was spotted on west Broadway in Derry with an unusual load: a full-size crucifix.

It might have been a religious statement or perhaps just a friendly lift for one of the annual walks.

Sports sticker

The Bruins are in the playoffs and there are plenty of fans cheering them on from Southern New Hampshire.

We have to assume the owner of a blue Ford Explorer spotted on Interstate 93 last week is among them. The vanity license plate reads: HCKYNUT.

Spreading the word

A resident of Mayflower Drive called Londonderry police last week about two mysterious men going door to door in her neighborhood.

The two men, dressed in suits, according to the caller, knocked at her door, but she didn’t answer. Since she didn’t, she told police, she wasn’t sure what they wanted.

Apparently they wanted to spread the word. The men were jEHOVAH’S wITNESSES, ACCORDING TO THE POLICE LOG.

Smithy or WWF fan?

The owner of a marron Ford pickup spotted on Interstate 93 last week likely was a blacksmith. The license plate read ANVIL.

But, perhaps, the driver is a fan of Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, a World Wrestling Federation star in the 1980s and 1990s.
