Albany, N.Y. (AP) - Troopers patrolling the state Thruway this Halloween will be watching out for pranksters.
State Police Troop T says it will conduct the 37th annual "Pumpkin Patrol" with more than 300 citizen volunteers on Halloween on Thursday, as well as the day before.
Troopers aim to prevent Halloween pranks and protect motorists along the highway with help from local citizen band radio clubs and amateur radio operators.
Volunteers also will monitor Thruway overpasses.
