SHEBOYGAN, Wisconsin — Cops are on a desperate hunt to stop a serial toilet bandit who keeps clogging a public restroom john, causing thousands of dollars worth of damage.
The sick prankster has hit the same toilet in the women’s bathroom at the Deland Community Center numerous times over the past 18 months, the Sheboygan, Wisconsin police say. Whoever is responsible has repeatedly shoved a 20 ounce soda into the pipe, which has resulted in major, costly plumbing repairs.
“Why do this? I do not know, but if you help us find the person, I will tell you. This is very strange… and gross, but that is the reality of life,” the department wrote on its Facebook page.
The city has had to spend “thousands of dollars in repair and labor costs,” not to mention the inconvenience of having a public restroom out of service.
“We are currently looking to find the said person or persons to hold them accountable. Please help us to keep our parks clean and safe for our residents and visitors,” the department said.
Joe Kerlin, the city’s superintendent of Park and Forestry, said the toilet was clogged a dozen times in 2016 and, 14 last year and three this year, according to MySheboygan.com.
