CONWAY, N.H. — Police in Conway, N.H., say damage from vandalism to equipment belonging to a logging company runs into the tens of thousands of dollars.

Detective Sgt. Al Broyer tells WMWV radio a worker arriving at a wood lot in Fryeburg, Maine, early Wednesday discovered two logging skidder machines had been started up and rammed into other logging machines. Trees on neighboring landowners’ property also were knocked down as the skidders were driven through the woods.

The lot is owned by Fadden Logging and Chipping Inc. in Conway. It straddles the Maine and New Hampshire border.

Owner Tom Fadden says at least one bulldozer was wrecked.

Conway and Fryeburg police are investigating.
