Police have caught an Indianapolis-area person known by people across proportional area premises as “the pooper.” The aptly-dubbed defecator has been dropping feces in Fishers, Indiana — and the person fingered was ferreted out by people discovering droppings on their lawns every few days. Tiny piles of toilet paper and unpleasant pellets of petulant poo have been scattered across three or four plots and parcels each week this summer, the denizens say.

Some neighbors who appeared on WTHR surmised for the suspect that a treadmill and a nearby toilet would have been a better option than being trounced by the entire town on account of one’s turds.
Authorities have not released the suspect’s name.
