Police find minor trouble brewing on Halloween

Posted: Sunday, November 03, 2002

Halloween revelers did a little more than trick-or-treat in Soldotna on Thursday night, according to police reports there.

Soldotna police received a report around 7:30 p.m. that a juvenile in a red mask was bullying other kids, telling them to give their trick-or-treat candy to him. At 9 p.m., a woman called to report juveniles had thrown eggs at a neighbor's house near Knoll Circle and Mooring, and just after 9:30 p.m., a call came in from Aspen Hotel reporting someone had thrown eggs at a vehicle parked there.

The Soldotna Community Patrol reported at 10 p.m. that someone tipped over a portable toilet and a few minutes later, a resident reported someone threw a burning package at an apartment door at the Corral Apartments.

Soldotna police contacted two female juveniles who were rolling burning pumpkins down a hill on Marydale Court at 11 p.m. The youths were advised of the hazard they were creating and agreed to clean up the mess.

On Friday morning, Soldotna police received a report that someone threw rocks and broke several windows at Soldotna Elementary School during the night.

Two windows were broken out and two rocks shattered the outer pane of a large double-pane window. Police are investigating the incident.

Meanwhile, Kenai police reported a quiet night.

The department had extra patrols assigned Halloween night, according to Lt. Kim Wannamaker, who said the city experienced "a very quiet Halloween."

"We received no significant calls for service relating to Halloween," he said.

One business did report vandalism involving damaged Sheetrock, but the incident was not necessarily Halloween related, he said.

"We had no grave robbing, potty tipping or ghost sightings ... no Elvis sightings either," Wannamaker said.

"The citizens of our community deserve thanks for helping keep the city safe and the help of neighbors watching neighbors is appreciated," he said.
