For the second time this year a family on Ardmore Drive had to clean up after vandals toilet papered their yard in the night.
On the night of June 30 the culprits left a large willow tree tangled with streams of white paper, and threw debris – including oats, toilet paper, olives and olive oil, and cat litter with feces – along the walkway and drive. The cement remains stained from the oil.
“It took 20 minutes to get the TP out of the trees,” said the owner of the home. “They used cheap TP so it was kind of easy to remove. I just pulled on one end and the whole strip came out. It took about 10 minutes more to wash out the mess they left on the walkway and front steps.”
The family living in the home has a son who attends Ferndale High School, and the parents suspect classmates might be involved. “My son is pretty mad about the whole thing,” said the mother. “He can’t believe someone would do that. I have to agree. TP-ing a house is pretty harmless to me, but the mess on the sidewalk was pretty mean.
A police officer came to the house to take information for a report, though there is no word yet from the Ferndale Police on how they handle such incidents. (Once comments are received they will be added to this article).
