Egg bandits hit hundreds of cars and homes

Pennsylvania police say a Landsdale couple is responsible for egging the property of more than 400 people.

Philip Fleck and his girlfriend Heather Darcy were out for revenge during an 18-month egging spree, police said.

The couple wanted to retaliate against friends for damages they said were inflicted upon them, but the couple also egged other people to draw suspicion away from them.

"I'd come out at 5:30 in the morning to go to work and my car was covered with eggs," said Dave Outland. "I'd hose it down as best I could and have to go to work, and when I came home the driveway was mucked up."

Outland can laugh about it now, but when he first saw the work of the vandals he was angry.

"I had to have the cars washed and waxed and then I had to get a power washer because there were so many eggs on my driveway," he said. "It was pretty bad."

Police said Fleck and Darcy caused more than $7,000 in damages, allegations Darcy's mother denies.

"I believe this is something being blown way out of proportion," said Cindy Darcy. "Heather has openly admitted to the police and was apologetic for the one incident."

According to court documents, both Fleck and Heather Darcy admitted their role in the 18-month egg-tossing spree.

Letters have been sent out to residents asking victims to come forward.

"We have an obligation under the law to seek to make them whole and to get restitution for them," said Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman.

Outland said he plans on collecting.

"I took two vacation days to sit out here at night to try and catch them," he said.
