Clawson Police say they believe local high school students played a series of "senior pranks" between Thursday night and Friday morning in several neighborhoods. The following reports were made to police:
Patio furniture relocated
A Clawson man reported someone took an entire patio set and charcoal grill from outside his home on the 300 block on Lincoln some time Thursday night. Police say they informed the man that earlier that day a neighbor found a patio set and grill in his front lawn. The resident visited the police station and confirmed the items were his.
A Clawson resident on the 400 block of East Baker told police someone stole a sandwich board-style sign from her front yard Thursday night. The sign was an advertisement for her landscaping business. Police informed the woman that it was possible local high school students could have removed the sign as part of a senior prank. The sign, valued at $100, is still missing.
Other reports included cars egged, toilet paper strewn across bushes and trees and forks in yards.
Senior pranks are an annual tradition for Clawson students every year in June, police say. Police say no one was caught playing any of the pranks and officers will typically warn students and tell them to go home if they witness the activities.
