HOUSTON, May 8 (UPI) -- Houston police are trying to wipe out a recurring crime wave by flushing out the identity of a man who has been caught on surveillance cameras going No. 2 on lawns and driveways in the city’s Woodland Heights neighborhood.
The disgruntled dumper has been leaving messes all over the neighborhood, and has pooped at one house at least six times.
"It's definitely not a nice thing to do to people," said Patrick Reese, who lives nearby. "Going to the bathroom in their driveway is not nice. That's definitely not something that's supposed to go on in polite society."
It is believed that the “serial pooper” usually strikes late at night or early in the morning under the cover of darkness. The man usually cleans himself up with a paper towel and then leaves the soiled sheet on the sidewalk for someone else sanitize.
"This is our neighborhood," area resident Aimee Parsons told Click 2 Houston.
"Whatever people think should go on around here -- pooping is not okay. We don't want dogs pooping in our yards why would we want a human? It is very strange."
Deputies with the Precinct One Constable's Office say the man will be charged with indecent exposure or criminal mischief charge when he is caught.
