Someone is pooping all over this town in upstate New York
Back in September, a jogger in Colorado Springs was spotted pooping all over the sidewalks in her town. Although the police were never able to make an arrest, multiple residents caught the woman in the act, leading one family to dub her “The Mad Pooper.”
Well, now it seems she’s either moved on to the East Coast or has inspired a copycat pooper, because someone has been defecating on people’s lawns in Orchard Park, New York, a small town near Buffalo.
“To the person/jogger who is pooping on our lawns in the Village of O.P.: STOP!!,” reads an advertisement one victim placed in the Orchard Park PennySaver. The ad also claims the person is violating a health ordinance, and that cameras have been installed to catch them in the act.
So far police have only received a single complaint, but the ad indicates the mystery pooper has struck multiple times.
Lt. Jason M. Schiedel of the Orchard Park Police Department told the Buffalo News that they have increased patrols in the area but admitted: “We don’t have much to go on.” He said they’d have to catch someone in the act in order to make an arrest. If caught the perpetrator would face charges of public lewdness or exposure.
Schiedel also said they OPPD has responded to similar complaints before, but those are usually associated with Buffalo Bills games.
