A Halifax homeowner who believes his house was egged by a group of teenagers is facing charges for chasing the alleged vandals in his car.

RCMP received a complaint about two vehicles driving erratically and moving at a high rate of speed on Highway 102 at approximately 9:55 p.m. on Wednesday.

Both cars were pulled over near Exit 3 on Highway 101.

The 18-year-old female driver of one car and the 48-year-old male driver of the other car are charged with failing to operate a motor vehicle in a careful and prudent manner.

There were also two teenaged passengers in the car with the 18-year-old driver.

The 48-year-old driver later told RCMP he believed his house on Beechwood Terrace was egged by three people in a car and had given chase in his own vehicle.

Police are still investigating the egg-throwing allegation.
