GRAPHIC: Serial pooper caught on camera defecating in neighborhood

NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana - Police are on the lookout for a chronic pooper, leaving their waste all over a New Orleans neighborhood.

Residents are fed up with the feces, and having to hose down the outside of their homes and businesses.

After someone has been defecating near her doorstep almost every morning, one woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, set up a security camera and caught a man, dressed as a woman, in the act.

"Oh, it's awful and disgusting to have to pull the hose out and hose it off. We're right by the market and a lot of people have to pass down this street. A lot of people pass by here, walking dogs, and I have to drag the hose out and it makes me sick," the woman told WDSU News.

The woman says each time she's caught the man on camera, he's wearing a different wig and clothing, which could mean that he is not homeless.

"Not everyone can get home quick enough." John Victorson owns a local bar.

He too is tired of having to clean up what someone else passed.

"It's plenty nasty, more annoying than anything, but we're trying to stop it," Victorson said.

Several police reports have been filed and an investigation is underway.
