Small town CSI:Case of the doggie do

Anyone in Northern Wayne County(Ohio) reading this should read the police report in this week's issue of The Post. This contains reports from the police departments of Rittman and Doylestown.

Anyway, this week there was a complaint filed from a resident of Doylestown. He claimed that his neighbor's dog keeps defecating in his yard. When the police arrived at his residence, he said that he didn't see the neighbor's dog leave the latest deposit and there were tracks leading in all directions. He didn't see the the alleged perpetrator of the crime, or the master.

He suggested to the police that they take sample and have it tested for DNA. The police told him that this would too costly for the crime, a minor misdemeanor.

You really can't make this stuff up.

Sounds like a load of crap to me. The complainer seems like he's barking up the wrong tree. He needs to raise a big stink with his neighbor about this problem; not bother the cops with it.

Give us the straight scoop, Cliff. Did the cops go through piles of evidence and flush out the criminal? All these puns have left me pooped.

I read silly!! But the neighbor really should leash their dog when it needs to piddle. We never let our pup past our yard, when walking we take baggies...and use them!!
Have a good day.

I love those small town police reports. We get 'em too in our paper. I even send some sheriff's reports (usually cows in the road) to some "big city" friends. The poop DNA request is a prize winner! (I will not scoop...I mean stoop, to my sister's brand of turd-rate humor.)

It sounds like a crap shoot and a crappy attitude with the neighbors. You are right that truth is stranger than fiction.
