RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) - Are you over the age of 12 and want to go trick or treating in Apex?
Technically, you'd be breaking the law. The Town has a pesky ordinance that clearly says that is a no-no.
Of course, Capt. Ann Stephens of the Apex Police Department said officers have historically taken a relaxed approach to the rule.
"The ordinance has been on the books since 1973, and they've never enforced the age ordinance," she said.
If there's a complaint, officers will go and investigate, she said.
"Sometimes, it is a little funny when you get college kids knocking on your door for candy," said Alexis Jenssen of Apex. "I think let them trick or treat, let them be part of the community."
Not only can you not be a teenager and trick or treat but you had better put that candy bag away after 9 p.m., too.
Not to be left out, Holly Springs has some Halloween restrictions for you.
A resolution effective Oct. 17 suggests only children under the age of 13 can trick or treat. Holly Springs has a little more flexibility for you teenagers wanting to collect free candy though. If you're over 13 and want to trick or treat, just don't wear a mask.
Holly Springs cites safety concerns are behind their restrictive suggestions.
