TP Victim Gets Revenge
Status: NewsToilet-papering a house isn't a very original prank, and if it causes property damage (such as in the case below where the vandals smeared dog food and flour before covering it up with toilet paper), it's just plain obnoxious. So I totally support what California woman Katja Base did after waking to find her home TP'ed. She used some smart sleuthing to track down the people who did it and turned them in to the police: The one thing that surprises me is that the stores were willing to share their records with her.

And then (I think) some police-officers might help to persuade the store-owner give the wanted information.Posted by Jerry S on Wed Aug 02, 2006 at 03:01 PM
hmmm impressive! I don't think I would have tracked them down.Posted by hmmm on Wed Aug 02, 2006 at 08:19 PM
I'm surprised at the store, also. Generally you need a court order to view security cameras or anything...Posted by Maegan in Tampa, FL - USA on Thu Aug 03, 2006 at 09:53 AM
I imagine shown a picture of the toilet papered house, most people might see a reason to agree to help.Posted by Owen on Thu Aug 03, 2006 at 02:17 PM
