Teen prank may have caused illness at Ann Arbor library, store

ANN ARBOR - Police believe teenagers using mace or pepper spray at a local library and grocery store sickened about two dozen people.

Surveillance tapes showed the same two teens in the Ann Arbor library branch and adjacent Kroger store.

Ann Arbor police Sgt. Jeff Connelly said the incident appears to be a prank and that investigators had not identified the two males on the tapes, The Ann Arbor News reported today.

Tests on the chemical substance used were inclusive Thursday.
