Police Reports: What's With All the Eggs? This Is Christmas Crime Season

Someone decides 'tis the season for egg-throwing in Geneva.

Apparently, some criminals didn't get the holiday memo.

In upcoming reports, you'll see additional petty crime that's in keeping with the season: pumpkins thrown at mailboxes and Christmas light cords severed, that sort of thing.

This egging spree is something we'd expect in April. We're calling the Easter Bunny, or perhaps Alec Baldwin. Geneva apparently needs a Rise of the Guardians.

Anyway, here are two reports freshly laid in the Geneva Police Department basket:

Criminal Damage to Property Under $300—Someone threw several eggs at a vehicle while it was parked unattended in the roadway in front of a residence in the 1100 block of Cheever Avenue around 9:55 p.m. Nov. 20, reports said. A witness told police she saw someone throwing eggs from a vehicle driving slowly down the block. The estimated damage to the victim’s vehicle is $200.

Criminal Damage to Property Under $300—Someone threw several eggs at a vehicle in the 1000 block of Peyton Street sometime between 6:45 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. Nov. 5, reports said. The vehicle was parked unattended in the roadway. Damage was estimated at $200. 


If you have information about this or any other crime in Geneva, please contact the Geneva Police Department at 630-232-4736.
