Vandals Egg Cars in Huron Farms Subdivision in Dexter

The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office is investigating vandalism claims that occurred on Aug. 26.

Unknown vandals are having a smashing good time egging cars in the Huron Farms subdivision, according to police.

Washtenaw County Sheriff Sgt. Keith Flores said deputies responded to a call around 1:30 a.m. on Aug. 27 near Ulrich Street in the Village of Dexter. Flores said several cars were egged by unknown persons sometime between the evening of Aug. 26 and early Monday morning.

Huron Farms residents took to Facebook on Monday to express frustration with the egging.

"Someone came to our house on Taylor Court and threw at least three eggs at one of our cars," Alex Elliott wrote.

Flores said deputies are investigating the claims, however there are currently no suspects.

"We don't have a lot of information about the case right now," he said. "I'm not sure if it's target specific. It appears that this was a one-time incident."

Anyone with information about the incident can call the Washtenaw County Sheriff's confidential tip line at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.

As delicate as an egg is, egg shell is a very hard substance. Thrown hard enough it can chip and scratch auto paint and cause considerable damage to a cars finish.

This is a sad sad state of affairs......This is Dexter..not Ypsi or Detroit! I am very disappointed in what has been happening in the Dexter area lately. We as a community need to stand up and say we are NOT going to let this happen in our town!!

I totally agree with Melissa. Dexter has been a very nice community to live in, raise children in and it is disheartening that with the growth, it is becomming an extension of inappropriate activities that we only used to hear about on the news in other communities not Dexter. Please STOP these ridicilous behaviors show appreciation for our community and become a model citizen to be proud of in your many years to come!

Not only can it scratch the paint, the egg will eat through the finish and stain your car. My car was egged three years ago in Huron Farms, as well.

I was driving down N. Territorial earlier this month when someone through an egg at my car and damaged the paint on the passenger side door. It happened along the Inverness golf course. I never saw where it came from.

Not bullets????? Not yet!!! That's what will be next if we don't stop this! I am very upset with your response Bill!!!

Hey Bill, If it's not a big deal to you, let's just give them all your address and let them have a free for all on your vehicles. I guess that doesn't sound so appealing any more, does it? I mean, you might have to wash your car every day and shell out big $$ for a new paintjob, but it sounds like you are ready to "suck it up and be happy about that", right? Really, Bill? It's called "respecting others". Dexter is a great place because on the whole, people respect each other. When someone isn't doing that, society puts that person on notice until they figure it out. Melissa is right - it's not bullets right now, and that's how we keep it that way for the future.

Respectful people don't knock other communities like Ypsi or Detroit.

The newspapers tell us that those are high crime areas. It isn't disrespectful to know the facts. Detroit has one of the highest crime rates in the nation, and it would be naive to think otherwise. No one likes the idea that there is so much crime and it would be wonderful if Detroit was a better community. As for Ypsi, well, it is trying to improve itself, and I support any efforts they make to better their community. Any time a community betters itself, it makes all the outlying communities better by association. Keeping Dexter a great place to live means doing something about the problem instead of trying to pretend that it wasn't that big of a deal. Take care of the small problems and the big ones take care of themselves.
