by Jay Hamburger, THE PARK RECORD

The Park City Police Department on Halloween evening and night reported conducing three patrols in cemeteries to ensure nobody was inside celebrating.

On Friday, Oct. 31 at 7:23 p.m., an officer checked the Park City Cemetery on Kearns Boulevard. No problems were found. An officer returned at 11:45 p.m., seeing no issues.

At 12:15 a.m., on Saturday, Nov. 1, an officer walked through the Glenwood Cemetery, which is located off Silver King Drive in Thaynes Canyon, without finding problems.

Phil Kirk, a police captain, said youngsters have been found in cemeteries on Halloween in past years.

"Kids being kids, hanging out in spooky places like cemeteries," Kirk said of the past years.
