Grocery receipt helps solve Mont. vandalism case

LIVINGSTON, Mont. (AP) — Police trying to figure out who egged and toilet-papered a house in a south-central Montana town cracked the case after finding a grocery bag and a receipt in the backyard.

Livingston Police Chief Darren Raney said Tuesday that a resident reported his house had been targeted by vandals on Aug. 29.

Investigating officers tracked the bag and receipt to a Livingston store, where video from a surveillance camera showed a group of teenage boys purchasing eggs and toilet paper.

Raney tells the Livingston Enterprise the boys, ages 15 and 16, were referred to the juvenile probation officer.
