BRIDGEWATER, Maine — State police appealed to the public Tuesday afternoon for information about an incident of vandalism at a Bridgewater home.

State police Sgt. Tom Pelletier said Tuesday that because the home was unoccupied, police are not sure when the incident occurred, but they believe it was between Jan. 3 and Jan. 17.

According to Pelletier, vandals broke into the residence on Buckley Road and rifled through kitchen and bathroom cabinets, put boards through walls and broke out most of the windows in the home.

They also destroyed several pieces of furniture, according to Pelletier.

When the owners came home and saw the destruction, they contacted state police. Damage is estimated to be well into the thousands of dollars.

There are no leads at this point, Pelletier said Tuesday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the state police at 800-924-2261.

Trooper Robert Flynn is the primary investigator on the case, assisted by Trooper Daniel Deschaine.
