Toilet stops up traffic
CHICKASHA, Okla. – Chickasha police said they get a lot of calls into their department but never one quite like this.
A concerned citizen called the law about a toilet.
“We drove through town and it was there still.”
In fact, a lot of people drive through the busy intersection.
It is one of the busiest ones in town which is probably why somebody carefully placed it in the middle of a median.
However, pictures are worth a thousand words.
They also make the rounds on Facebook.
Nobody knows why the toilet was placed there or where it came from but police said they believe it was definitely a very deliberate act.
“Maybe to see everyone’s reaction,” one passerby said.
“Normally people will discard trash on the side of the road but this is a porcelain toilet,” Chickasha Police Major Elip Moore said. “If they had thrown it from a vehicle, it would have busted. Whoever placed it there deliberately placed it there with care.”
Police said they had the public works department remove the toilet from the intersection.
While it is a crime to litter, they said finding the person who did it does not exactly rank at the top of their priority list.
