The (Boulder) Daily Camera said Sunday that police are actually turning up the pressure on the annual Halloween event in which streakers sprint down Pearl Street wearing nothing but Jack-o-Lanterns on their heads.
The newspaper said the participants were rarely cited in the event's 10-year history, but Police Chief Mark Beckner said its growing popularity was raising concerns.
"We wanted to do something before (the event) got out of hand," he said. "This was a good opportunity to enforce the law."
The chief told KMGH-TV in nearby Denver that the fact Halloween fell on a Friday this year was cause for concern.
Some residents told the Daily Camera they felt police resources would have been better spent on more-serious criminal activity.
