Hartford Police On Lookout for ‘Peeping Tom’

Wilder — Hartford police are on the lookout for an alleged peeping tom who was seen late Friday night outside of a home in the Hemlock Ridge subdivision.

The tall, white male, who police said looks to be between 55 and 65 years old and has gray hair, was spotted just before midnight on Friday on Laurel Lane, near Route 5.

Hartford Patrol Officer Laura Tarbell said yesterday that this suspect and investigation is separate from the Appalachian Trail hiker who has been leaving graphic sexual and violent logbook entries at shelter logbooks, and who many in the trail community believe is likely in the Upper Valley this weekend.

Any suspicious activity should be reported to Hartford police at 802-295-9425.
