Police in Kansas are hunting a ‘poopetrator’ who walked into a Beauty Supply store and defecated in the aisle, damaging eight wigs.
Photos of the unnamed woman were released by Wichita police on Tuesday. Within two hours, they said they had managed to identify her. She has not yet been arrested.
‘Wichita, we need your help with a… unique case. We’re trying to identify the pictured female, who on May 10th entered a Beauty Supply store in the 2200 block of E. 21st Street and defecated in the middle of the aisle.
‘Yes, you read that right,’ they tweeted on Tuesday.
Police in Wichita, Kansas, on Tuesday published photos of a woman they said was caught on camera defecating in a store
Getting into their stride, the police continued: ‘The defecation was significant enough that 8 wigs were destroyed as a result, and the business would like to know who the poopetrator is so they can pursue criminal charges.
‘The incident was captured on video surveillance, but for the good of all of you we are not posting the footage of the offending fecal assault.
‘If you know the identity of public enemy number 2, you can call Det. Meier.’
On their Facebook page, they said they had received many calls claiming that the woman was Amber Heard – currently in court in Virginia, as part of a defamation trial, during which her ex-husband Johnny Depp accused her of defecating in the bed. Heard said it was a Yorkshire terrier, Boo.
‘We’ve already confirmed that this is NOT Amber Heard so please stop calling and emailing that info! Thanks!’ the department said on Facebook.
‘Let’s hope you can wipe this case clean and flush away the memories,’ one Facebook user commented.
The police replied: ‘This might be one of those cases that sticks with us.’
Wichita Police Officer Trevor Macy told Newsweek that the suspect caused about $200 worth of damage, according to the store.
‘I believe the surveillance footage and the evidence left behind helped discover what had occurred,’ Macy said.
‘At this time it is believed to have been intentional.’
Appropriate charges are currently being determined.
