Four young men have been charged with disorderly conduct after randomly egging homes and vehicles throughout Rosemount several days last week.

Rosemount Community Resources officer Beth Richtsmeier said four teenage males were arrested for the vandalism on March 28 after an officer saw a vehicle driving slowly down the wrong side of the road. During the stop, the officer found more than two dozen eggs in the vehicle and confronted the young men about a recent string of vandalism. Richtsmeier said the young men admitted to egging property on several occasions.

Jack Ailts, 18, Andrew John Huot, 18, Sean Elliot Kalinowski, 18 and a 17-year-old male have been cited for disorderly conduct for the criminal damage in connection with the vandalism. The 17-year-old also received a curfew violation.

The Rosemount Police Department had received complaints from throughout the city on several occasions in the days leading up to the arrests. Richtsmeier said there was no common theme among those targeted.

Richtsmeier issued a stern warning that the vandalism needs to stop and that there are consequences for the crime. In Minnesota, disorderly conduct is a misdemeanor offense and carries a punishment of 90 days in jail or a $1,000 fine.
