The Associated Press

TROY, N.H. A man on a stolen bulldozer repeatedly rammed the town police station early Friday, tearing down large chunks of the front wall.

No one was inside the stationhouse at the time, but police said an officer arriving shortly after midnight saw the bulldozer attack in progress.

Troy officer Kevin Stone watched as the bulldozer hit the front of the building repeatedly, police said. Stanley Burt, 34, was arrested and charged with criminal mischief, reckless conduct with a deadly weapon and driving and probation violations.

Investigators said Burt stole the bulldozer from nearby Troy Mills. The police station and equipment inside, including the phone system, were heavily damaged.
