Akron cops fail to flush 'serial pooper'

AKRON, Ohio -- Akron police detectives have suspended their investigation into the unidentified man suspected of defecating on cars in the city's Kenmore area.

Police say the defecating stopped in March after the man's image was captured on a surveillance camera set up by a resident.

The resident said he was determined to catch the culprit in the act and put an end to the vandalism waste that had plagued the neighborhood for several years.

This week, after about two months of investigation and interviewing several potential suspects, Akron police said they have more pressing cases to devote their resources.

The man is suspected to have defecated on more than 100 vehicles the past several years. His motivation is unclear, although many of the victims, including the resident who set up the camera, are workers for the City of Akron.

Since then, Akron police detectives have tried to determine the man's identity. Despite the photo being spread worldwide on news and social media websites, detectives have been unable to identify the man.

Police did not obtain any DNA from the waste. Residents removed the waste and cleaned their vehicles.
