An Odd Kind of Egg Donation

Rincon Beat

July 15, 6:17 a.m.

Someone illegally entered a man's work van only to steal some rather random, relatively inexpensive stuff—but even more nonsensically, the thief left a single chicken egg behind, perhaps as part of some sort of perceived exchange, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

The victim told sheriff's deputies he'd left his van unlocked outside his house the previous night, and this morning his work pack was missing—a camouflage backpack containing leather work gloves, safety glasses and a copper cutting tool (worth an estimated $70–100 in total). The pack had been removed from the area between the driver's and passenger's seats.

Oddest of all, however, was that before leaving his vehicle, the thief had left behind one chicken egg, in the shell (but presumably uncooked) in the van in place of the backpack.

The reportee said "he did not know (the) significance (of) the chicken egg; however, he believed it was strange." He also had no idea who might've gone into his van.

Nothing else in the van was stolen, although deputies did find the victim's cowboy hat (which had originally been in the van) on the ground a few feet away from the vehicle, as if the thief had been wearing it for awhile and then took it off and dropped it before leaving the area.

Deputies found no clues regarding the identity of the backpack thief/egg donor.
