City of Chesapeake: Trick-or treating is for kids only (audio)

If you’re over fourteen and you try to go trick-or-treating in Chesapeake, it could result in a hefty fine.

According to the City of Chesapeake, there’s a code on the books that says anyone over the age of 14 who engages in trick-or-treating is guilty of a Class 4 misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $250 dollars.

The ban on adult treat or treating isn’t new though, in fact, the penalty was only reduced in March when city officials changed the original 1970 ordinance that said kids over 12 years old who were trick-or-treating could face jail time.
