Today's Most: Mystery solved: Police find 'mystery pooper' who left mark on playground

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

TODAY'S MOST... Interesting mystery solved: Authorities in Michigan found the "mystery pooper" who was leaving his mark, repeatedly, at a children's playground. The Ypsilanti Police confirm they made contact with a guy who defecated on a slide at a park.

The police chief says the guy was told to stop, and hasn't come back to the park. No charges were filed.

Ypsilanti City Council member Pete Murdock says the man lives in a halfway house nearby.

The search to find the mystery pooper got national attention earlier this year. Billboards appeared on a local highway asking people to "Do Their Civic Doody" and "Help Us Flush Out the Pooper."

Surveillance cameras were set up to try to catch the person in action. Police didn't say if the cameras helped find the suspect.

Council Member Brian Robb told Mlive he hopes "we can just put this behind us. It's great that the police were able to put a stop to this just as the weather warmed up...Let's hope we don't have any copycat crimes."
