Police are searching for a jogger with a serious case of the runs, who they say has defecated in front of several Colorado homes for weeks.
Residents in Colorado Springs are calling the mystery female jogger “The Mad Pooper” and say she has defecated in front of the homes at least once a week over the past two months, KKTV reports:

Some residents claim she even did it in the presence of children.
“I thought for sure she’s mortified. It’s an accident. She’ll go get a dog bag, clean it up and never run here again,” resident Cathy Budde told KKTV. “Not the case.”
Budde added that there are restrooms located at a nearby convenience store and park, so she is not sure why the mystery woman would continue to do this.
Colorado Springs police told KDVR that they are just as baffled by the situation as residents.
“It’s abnormal, it’s not something I’ve seen in my career,” Sgt. Johnathan Sharketti said.
Police say the woman could be charged with indecent exposure and public defecation.
Police are asking anyone who can identify the woman to call the Falcon division of the Colorado Springs Police Department at 719-444-7240.
Other areas of the country have also dealt with a “mystery pooper.”
In 2014, police in Ypsilanti, Michigan, spent months searching for someone they say was responsible for defecating on a playground in a park. Police found the suspect in May, and they say the playground has been feces-free ever since.
