A man in Portland, Oregon, earned an incredible nickname this week after he got caught on camera shitting all over a local business owner's property, and now the police are looking to lock him up.

Apparently the mysterious guy, dubbed the "Portland Pooper," has been dropping deuces in public for about a month now, KOIN 6 reported Wednesday. When the business owner (who's elected to remain anonymous, possibly to avoid copycat crappers) watched the serial shitter do his thing near the office one too many times, he set up a video camera to catch him in the act.

Now, there's footage of the Pooper pulling off his belt, whipping out a roll of toilet paper, leaning up against a wall outside the office, and, well, pooping on it. In the long, uncomfortable scene, it looks like the Pooper notices he's being filmed, but just kind of keeps on going anyways.

"He's got to know something is going on," the business owner told KOIN 6. "He squints and he's paying attention."

Along with all the other weird shit taped up across the city, Portland is now covered with flyers bearing a picture of the Pooper's face, asking anyone who happens to notice him to contact the police. If he's caught, the culprit could face "offensive littering" charges.

"You just don't really know what to expect around here," a local resident told KOIN 6. "People, they like do their own thing, they kind of march to the beat of their own drum."
