Franklin Police are looking for the people responsible for throwing eggs at cars and homes all over the community over the past month. Homeowners realize egging isn't a serious crime, but it is inconvenient. 

Mary Herman had two cars egged in two days in the past week. 

"It was all over the side of the car. That's when my husband said call the police, enough is enough."

Police have had 20 reports of eggings since mid-December. 

"It's not good for the paint on your cars.  It's a pain in the butt to have to go to car washes two to three times in one weekend, and we had to run our cars through twice because it didn't come off the first time," Mary Herman said.

Police said the eggings are happening all over Franklin.  The culprits are throwing eggs at mailboxes, driveways, garages, and cars. 

Dean Herro calls it inappropriate. 

"They're kids and they're just having what they think is fun because they don't have to clean it up," he said.

Neighbors are thankful they aren't dealing with a more serious crime, but do hope the people stirring up the mess know this is serious vandalism.

"It's not robbing a bank, but it's still kids being kids. I get that, but it's still a nuisance to have to do this a couple times in the same week especially," Herman said.

Police say they have surveillance video of juveniles buying a large amount of eggs from a convenience store and they're working with a school resource officer to identify the possible suspects.
