Closure of Mt. Mica and other quarries

Mt. Mica was hit by poachers and as a result the mine owner has closed all his mines to collecting.  The person(s) responsible were driving a green suv with N.H plates. If anyone has any info on who did this please contact me , or any other chairperson on this site.
