Deputies enjoyed a peaceful trick-or-treat with minimal damage done by vandals, said Capt. Sean Crosier of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office.
Officers responded to a small debris fire and rock throwing at vehicles in the Giles community of Cabin Creek as well as a tree across the road on Winifred Hollow Road. Deputies used chainsaws and were assisted by area residents to quickly clear the road.
Deputies in unmarked vehicles circumvented what could have been a huge fire on Hughes Creek Road in Hugheston when they foiled several teens carrying two large couches with plans to set them ablaze in the road, Crosier said.Crosier said the most alarming was four reports of drivers under the influence throughout the county during trick-or-treat hours.
