Pages of History: Halloween egg thievery

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, October 1969.

Del Norte County sheriff’s deputies “cracked” an egg case with the apprehension of one of the persons involved with the theft of some 104 dozen eggs taken from Bay City Market on Northcrest Drive on Oct. 30.

Deputies, who did not immediately make known the 18-year-old male involved, said that because of Friday night being Halloween night, “field justice was meted out in which the youth was given until sundown to round up the remaining eggs or else.”

The sheriff’s department, whose primary interest was in getting the eggs “rounded up” before they became “ammunition for Halloween trick or treaters,” said that the youth would be formally charged at a later date.
