Vandals left receipt for their “ammo” behind

Vandals who egged a Colfax car dealership early Wednesday morning left a note at the scene decrying “the ignorant use of fossil fuels” – a note written on the back of a Winco receipt for 5 dozen eggs. Whitman County Sheriff’s investigators visited the grocery store and reviewed video footage of the egg purchase, which enabled them to identify four suspects. The four, who all are 20 and 21 years old, admitted they had taken part in the egging incident, the sheriff’s office said in a press release. They potentially face charges of trespassing and malicious mischief and they’ve agreed to pay for cleanup costs and “write letters of apology to the dealership for their actions,” the release said. The sheriff’s office noted that investigators worked “most of the day to ‘crack’ the case.”
