Egg launchers identified by shell barcodes

Police have used ingenuity to find four young people who threw eggs at cars from a motorway overpass in southern France.

The story began on January 25 when several motorists traveling on a highway in Occitania alerted authorities after getting eggs on their windshield, according to La Dépêche.

With no witnesses and no surveillance cameras, only a few empty egg cartons remained at the scene when the police arrived. Thanks to the producer codes of the trays and pieces of packaging left behind, the authorities were able to identify the producer, who was able to provide them with information about the supermarket where he had bought his goods.

The police were then able to view the store’s surveillance cameras. Four people who bought 80 eggs half an hour before the misdeeds were identified were identified.

A 19-year-old young man has to appear before the court and three other minors before the youth protection court.
