The Park City Police Department since early February has received a series of reports involving some sort of vandalism to cars and trucks, including complaints that parked vehicles had been egged.

  • on Feb. 10 at 1:52 p.m., someone on Homestake Road told the police eggs had been thrown at a driver’s side door and window on a vehicle that was parked there. The police were also told the driver’s side taillight was smashed and a dent was found in a fender.
  • on Feb. 10 at 11:49 a.m., the police received a report that between 10 and 14 cars had been egged in a parking lot on lower Iron Horse Loop Road.
  • on Thursday, Feb. 7 at 2:04 a.m., three tires were found slashed on a vehicle on the 400 block of Swede Alley. The vehicle suffered body damage as well, the policed were told.

    Meanwhile, on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 8:46 p.m., the police received a report from someone on Main Street that two tires on a parked vehicle were flat. The tires were fine when the driver parked there, the police were told. A tow truck was summoned. The police classified the case as criminal mischief.

    In another case involving eggs, the Police Department on Sunday, Feb. 3 at 8:47 p.m. received a report that a man had egged an apartment on lower Iron Horse Loop Road. Someone was ordering the man to clean up the eggs, the police were told.
