My house got egg and balogne sandwiched

So I'm sitting in the computer room when all of a sudden a hear a loud bang at the front door and a car peeling out. I look out the window and don't see anything of course, but I open the door and I've got raw egg and what looks like some bread all over the door and dripping into the house.

I ran and grab some shoes and go outside to survey the damage and the neighborhood. Egg is everywhere mixed with some nice gooey bread but I don't really pay all that much attention to it. I start walking up the street to see if anybody else got hit, but secretly hoping the kids come back. I get about 6 houses up the street and all the houses looks fine.

My house is on the street corner and as I'm walking back I see Jetta with 4 kids in it pull up to the corner from the opposite direction. This is about 5 minutes after my house was hit. The door opens and two kids get out in the middle of the street and start walking towards another house. The Jetta peels out (sounding very similar to the sound I'd heard previously) does a quick 180 and parks right in the entrance to a driveway about four houses up the way it had just come. The two kids who are out of the car start laughing and running after the car. The driver leaves his car on but gets out and runs across the street. The other kids join him yelling and start running up to front doors and my thought is that they're going to egg someone else.

I take off the down the street, running right past the three yelling kids and over to the Jetta. I open the front door and ask the kid who is still in the passenger side what the hell they are doing. He replies "It wasn't me, I'm just sitting here, I didn't do anything." I stand there with the door open for about 15 seconds not really sure what I'm going to do, then I reach in and take the keys out of the ignition.

Another neighbor comes out of his house and I ask if his was egged. He says no, so I run back inside my house and have my wife call the non-emergency number. About this time the driver of said Jetta starts ringing my doorbell furiously.

He profusely denies egging the house and gives me this line "I'm on the football team. I take AP classes. Do you really think I'm stupid enough to egg your house?" Well, yes, yes I do.

Around this time a police car pulls into the street and I flag him down. Within 3 minutes two more come. The kids are yelling and the police officers separate us into two groups. I tell him my story and also that I had grabbed the kids keys so he wouldn't run off. He tells me that I shouldn't have done that and they could probably press charges against me for stealing his car. He doesn't think there's a problem though since they're all minors. I take him over to the house and show him the front door. He shines his flashlight on the mass of bread and asks "Is that balogne?" Yes. It was a balogne sandwich... with a nice raw egg (or two?) in it for good measure.

The cops take statements from the four kids, search their car, but don't find any eggs or balogne sandwiches. They walk the driver of the car over to me where he's looking all smug because he knows he's off the hook. He gives me a "I'm sorry your house got egged, but you had no right to take my keys." The officer asks if we'd like to fill out an incident report, but it's a class C misdemeanor and the stupid kids aren't going to get in trouble so I just let it go.

We had to use a hose and sponge to clean off the house, but at least our front door is cleaner than it's been in a while.

Morale of the story: If some dumbass is egging your house, make sure you actually saw him do it before stealing his keys, otherwise the cops won't do anything.

Kinda odd they didn't have any evidence on them. Or they have done this on several occasions and have their criminal acts formulated to a perfection.

Find out where they live and mail the residue to their parents.

On second thought. Don't. You'd probably be charged as a terrorist.

I think CSI needs to step in to piece the eggshell together and see if they can get any print from it.

And I wouldn't waste any bologna on you. I'd throw a pimento loaf.

I fucking hate vandalism. Stupid kids doing stupid stuff. This use to happen when I was growing up, but thankfully the kids got caught and they linked a TON of previous vandalism to the kids. The problem was that they still didn't care, their parents paid the fines, got the records sealed, and nothing much came of it. They mostly baseball batted mailboxes....dozens, amongst other things.

The police officer when asking if we wanted to file an incident report said something about "trying to take fingerprints." My wife and I were both wondering how hard they would work trying to lift prints off the eggshell.

Yes. Then you would have learned what it's really like to get bologna sandwiched.

I had a neighbor who got BBQ sauce thrown at his house and of course he lived on the corner.

It was really stupid to take the key. Sounded like the cop just didn't want to waste time because of lack of evidence.

Aargh. Fuckin' cops like this are why the general public thinks that real life is like CSI.

You wouldn't believe the amount of crap that gets thrown in our yard because we live on the corner (and right across from the community pool). I will never EVER by a corner house again.

Taking the key was just a gut reaction because asking them to stay until the cops arrived didn't seem very likely. It was fun watching the kid sweat though when I had his keys. My guess is the kids either got rid of their egg and balogna elsewhere in the neighborhood before coming back, or they just had the one to begin with. I suppose the other alternative is that some kids through some crap at my house then sped off, then another group just happened to show up 5 minutes later running around through peoples lawns 5 minutes later. I mean, that seems plausible right?

At least I got a good story out of the deal.

When I was a kid, my elderly neighbors got a tampon dipped in ketscup put in their mailbox and a pad with ketscup on it stuck to their car's windshield. Someone also spray painted over their license plate. Sad.

I'm waiting for Single to post about your actions.

I imagine the kid was freaking out when you took his keys. Tossing them on the nearest roof, and then not calling the cops, would have been the way to go.

Yeah. My hope is that I scared them bad enough that they won't mess with me again. So far no eggs today... we'll see next weekend though.

Couldn't you have just taken down the license plate?

Well that was the original plan, but:

A) I was walking the neighborhood and didn't have pen/paper with me.
B) They parked about 200 yards from my house and I figured there was a 50/50 chance that something else would happen and I'd forget it before I could get back inside and write it down
C) Do you really expect the cops to go out looking for a car that had thrown some egg at my house? I figured they would have to be caught red handed... which is what I thought I'd done at the time.
