Three found guilty in vehicle egging spree
Three area males have been found guilty in Pierce County Circuit Court following a vehicle egging spree in Ellsworth last fall which Police Chief Greg Place called one of the most far-reaching in his memory.
Caleb J. Beebe, 20, Ellsworth, Cody J. Books, 18, Bay City, and Lucas M. Morth, 20, Hager City, were each found guilty earlier this month on two counts of party to criminal damage to property. Beebe and Books were placed on six months probation on each count, concurrently, while Morth was placed on one year probation on each, also concurrently.
"It started out as an innocent prank that quickly went bad," Place said Thursday.
Over the nighttime hours on Sept. 11 and 12, the three were reportedly involved in egging parked vehicles during a series of incidents apparently taking them from the village's east end to its Highlands Addition on the northwest side and the vicinity immediately south of its midway district. According to the criminal complaint, the trio individually told police various versions of those incidents.
