Unhappy Christmas present found on Roma man's car
IMAGINE returning from your holidays, only to find someone had vandalised your pride and joy.
That's exactly the feeling Roma's Jed Ikin had when he came back just days ago to discover someone had egged his car along Powell St.
Mr Ikin said it must have happened before Christmas because he didn't even notice the eggings until after he pulled it out of the garage.
He said the incident was "shocking", especially since egg stains car paint.
"It does damage the paint - I'll have to give it a wash to check to see how badly," he said.
"They could be driving around - my car was parked down the street and they could be pegging it while passing by.
"I was shocked and angry - why would someone go out of their way to damage someone's property?"
Roma Police Acting OIC Scott Jackson said no other reports of eggings had been reported to police.
A charge of wilful damage carries with it a maximum sentence of seven years in jail.
