Press release today -

‘Newport Police want to inform visitors to Miantonomi Memorial Park using the hiking trails the following message;
An incident regarding the placement of string and wire type materials across several hiking trails has been discovered. These items were promptly removed.
This act could present a hazard to those unsuspecting hikers and walkers using the trails in the park. Newport Police urges anyone with information on this incident or the discovery of new such hazards to contact the police department at the non-emergency numbers of 847-1306’

I dunno who is doing this and where it may happen again, so box seekers in R.I., use extra caution.

Not again. Didn’t this happen like 2 years ago, but I’ve forgotten where? It was someone trying to stop dirt bike riders, but in the worst way possible :(

Newport has some bad mojo going on, including the deliberate poisoning of trees

Regarding the R.I. Red Rooster box in Woonsocket -

Since adopting this box a year ago, I have discovered that this is a private cemetery that is closely monitored. Every finder including myself have been approached by one of the cemetery trustees. I am retiring this box out of respect.
