Halloween pranksters caught

...it seemed like everything went wrong for the Halloween pranksters.

In a small Sierra town, in the late 1960s, it seemed like everything went wrong for the Halloween pranksters. 

As an example, about 5 days before Halloween, three boxes of eggs disappeared from a delivery truck. These eggs were on their way to stores. After the driver stopped to get breakfast, he saw that the eggs were gone from his truck. 

The driver said that he saw a large, black pick-up truck drive up and park near his small truck and 15 minutes later speed away. When he went to get back into his truck, he saw that the boxes of eggs were gone. After he got back to town, he said, that he went to the sheriff’s office and filed a stolen egg report.

When the night of Halloween came around, a notice went out from the sheriff’s office to all deputies and city police that stolen eggs might be used to throw at building or groups of people, which has happened in the past Halloweens. 

At one of the schools, in the area, a car drove up and the occupants got out of the car and were ready to throw eggs at the building; they heard a siren and jumped back into the car and sped off.

They went to a country post office and got out of the car and were ready to throw eggs, but they heard a siren, they then jumped back into the car and drove away.

The same thing kept happening every time they jumped out of the car to throw eggs. 

When the car with the egg throwers went to a small school to throw eggs, they were met by two sheriff’s cars and eight deputies.

The eggs, found in the car, were confiscated and citations were issued to the people in the car, and then they were released. 

What the people in the car didn’t know was that they were being followed by several cars—CB Radios in the cars were used to inform the sheriff deputies were the car was at all times.

For several years, no eggs were reported stollen and no damage to any buildings. 

According to several of the deputies, they said that it felt good to have the local people helping us.
