This makes NO sense. The criminals poured all of those things on the rope? What would the point of that be? And how did Santa Rita "school officials" find out about this at 2:51 a.m. on a Saturday?
May 5, 2:51 a.m., 700 block of Los Altos Avenue: Santa Rita School officials reported that a flag pole rope was cut and vandalized with shaving cream, ketchup and chocolate.
(This is also a convenient segue to a coming post about Craig Harrison, who once built a rope-and-pulley contraption capable of painting the LAHS flagpole as a "science project")
