YPSILANTI, Mich., May 14 (UPI) -- Police have identified an individual who they believe is the infamous Michigan "mystery pooper" but they have not released a name to the public.

Ypsilanti Police made contact with a suspect believed to be the fecal felon and Police Chief Tony DiGiusti told the Ann Arbor News there haven't been any more puzzling poops since.

The individual was suspected of going No. 2 on the same slide in Prospect Park between November and April on a regular basis.

Friends of Prospect Park head Pete Murdock said the individual resides in a nearby halfway house. "I think if the person is put out of commission in terms of what they were doing, they should be safe," Murdock said. "I haven't heard of any incidents since all the to-do."

Council Member Brian Robb said he hopes there aren't "any copy cat crimes."

"This whole saga has generated a lot interest in Prospect Park from around the country. It's great that the police were able to put a stop to this just as the weather warmed up," Robb said.
