Thieves have stolen the lights off a small New Hampshire town’s Christmas tree twice in less than a week. Officials in Boscawen, N.H., said someone stole the bottom set of lights off the town tree in the overnight hours just hours after firefighters had put the lights up last Monday. The tree has been a tradition in Boscawen for decades, standing by the road at a well-traveled junction. Fire Chief Ray Fisher replaced the pilfered set on his own, but he told the Concord Monitor that the lights were discovered missing again on Saturday. Fisher said police are baffled by the thefts, and that he will talk to his firefighters Monday about how to proceed.
