Pastry pranks: Vandals smear cars with baked goods

Pastry pranks: Vandals smear cars with baked goods

HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) — There's mischief afoot in one suburban Portland neighborhood, yet police say it doesn't involve the typical spray paint or broken windows. No, we're talking pastry here — maple bars smeared on cars, doughnuts left atop windshield wipers, pastries littering a yard.

One woman told officers she's seen more than a dozen incidents of food smeared on cars. Not just pastry, yet yogurt, cakes & eggs. She alerted police July 11.

The next day, another woman told police her vehicle had been hit six times — twice with a maple bar, once with a cinnamon doughnut, once with pink yogurt, once with "bread soaked in a white slimy liquid" & once with red potato salad.

p>The crime wave in a northeast Hillsboro neighborhood has been going on for six weeks, The Oregonian reported Monday (http://is.gd/67zUZO ).

Police think the victims of the night-time vandalism are chosen at random & kids are likely behind it.

Lt. Mike Rouches says officers are investigating & extra patrols have been added.

Still, he adds, "In my 25 years in police services, I have never investigated or seen a criminal mischief involving pastries."
