Manchester Police

A burglar appears to have smiled and stuck his tongue out at a hidden camera set up at a Manchester, N.H., home as he lugged out his booty.

Police are searching for the man who burglarized the home on Aug. 1, while the homeowners were at work, Manchester police said in a statement.

A small, hidden camera captured several stills of the burglar, who appears to be carrying a guitar and an amplifier. He stole a “large assortment” of items after forcefully entering the home, police said.


It appears the burglar may have acted alone, police said.

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective David Dupont at 603-792-5508.
