Here's one potential drawback to beachfront property...

OSSIPEE, NH - Someone stole a speedboat last night and somehow managed to leave it running, allowing it to cross Ossipee Lake in eastern New Hampshire and, once it reached the opposite shore, to propel itself 75 feet up a beach and across a road before it ramped up onto the porch of a residence and embedded itself partway into the house.

    The crash shortly after midnight this morning got the attention of the homeowners, who were not injured, as well as the New Hampshire State Police Marine Patrol, the Ossipee Police and the West Ossipee and Center Ossipee fire departments who all responded to Deer Cove Road and found that the boat, even though it was stuck in the house, was still running and no one was onboard.

    Rescue teams searched both the nearby shoreline and the water but did not find anyone.

    During the subsequent investigation it was determined that the boat, a 22-foot long 2007 model Black Four Winns, had been stolen from a mooring at Bluffs Beach in Center Ossipee.  

    Anyone who may have further information related to this incident is being encouraged to contact Marine Patrol Sergeant Seth Alie at (603) 293-2037 or via email at
