The Silver Lake egg tossers struck again last week, with reports of property getting egged on Dillon Street, Tesla Avenue and Silver Lake Boulevard A police alert last month failed scare off the egg throwers but perhaps a surveillance camera will do the trick. A Silver Lake resident whose own home has been egged 10 times since the summer used a digital camera to record eggs being tossed at a home from a white, four-door Lexus RX-300, which fits the description given of the suspected egg tossers in an incident last month. The license plate number could not be made out in the video but it has been sent into the LAPD, according to the Silver Lake resident. The same man along with other neighbors tired of cleaning egg goo off their windows and walls are now looking at sharing the cost of buying a more powerful surveillance camera.
The Silver Lake man concedes being egged is not the “worst thing that could be happening. But it has now been going on for five months, and someone’s idea of a joke is no longer funny:
“When I first got egged back in July it was like “Well, someone was out having a bit of fun.” I cleaned up the mess and didn’t give it another thought. But nine additional times since then? What a waste of food and gas. This person usually hits our area between midnight and one am, so a white Lexus driving around the reservoir or in the hills at that time shouldn’t be too hard to notice. Someone out there must know that these guys are out driving around that late at night.”
