Burglaries may not be the most common in the New Hampshire area, but Nault’s Powersports located in Windham, New Hampshire was robbed for the second time in less than a year. According to WMUR,  Four dirt bikes were stolen from the business in the early hours of New Year’s Day; the bikes totaled to more than $40,000 in value. WorldAtlas.com reports that New Hampshire is actually ranked 47th of out of the 50 states in burglary rate with 313.7 burglaries per 100,000 people; New Mexico sits in 1st with 887.3 for comparison.


Nault’s Powersports is a business with locations in Windham, Manchester, and Littleton, New Hampshire. The establishment offers a wide range of powersport vehicles including: snowmobiles, ATVs, motorcycles, lawn mowers, and more. 


WMUR explains the event as, according to police, a surveillance video from the store showed five men wearing hoods and masks outside the store at 4:22 pm and began breaking windows with stones until a hole was made. An internal surveillance video shows a man coming in. One of them is holding a bolt cutter. Then they started cutting the cables that hold some dirt bikes in place, police said. They were extended when they were free. Other bicycles on the 2nd floor have also closed down. The suspects even took five helmets to accompany the dirtbikes. Finally by 4:22 am, the suspects left the Nault’s but not without returning a minute later to put the bolt cutter on the floor.


The business encountered a similar burglary back in May of 2021. However, the suspects from this incident were not caught. This left the general manager, Curt Greiner, with nothing to do other than make security upgrades. Unfortunately, these security upgrades were still no match for those involved with this break-in as Greiner mentioned, “We got better cameras, better security, but these guys, they are in and out and prepared. They know what they want when they get here. They are on a mission”, WMUR reports.


To make things even worse, the powersport company was apparently already struggling. An interview by WMUR with Greiner states, he exclaimed that the suspects “think they are stealing bikes”, however, “They are stealing people’s paychecks, this is a low-inventory situation. We have hardly any inventory to sell, and they are stealing what little we have.”


Only time will tell whether these criminals will be caught and justice brought to Nault’s Powersports. Unfortunately, there is not much for police to go off, and they are asking that anyone with possible information regarding the identification of the suspects contact the Windham Police Department.
