COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- While a woman seen repeatedly doing her business in a Colorado Springs neighborhood continues to elude capture, Toilet paper company Charmin is offering up a deal that she may not want to pass.

The company offered the runner, dubbed the "Mad Pooper" by neighbors, a year's supply of toilet paper if she turned herself in. Charmin tweeted the offer hours after the story went viral across the globe.

A witness snapped photos of the female runner, who has apparently been caught treating people’s yards as toilets on several occasions since July.

The latest instance happened at a house in the Pine Creek neighborhood. A woman there told officers her children spotted the woman right in the middle of things.

“Young kids actually witnessed this and went in and said, ‘Mom, there’s a lady defecating in our yard,’” said Colorado Springs Police Department spokesman Lt. Howard Black. “Maybe they didn’t use that word, but the woman went out and confronted her, and it was clear what she was doing. She just took off.”

Police say if caught, the woman could face indecent exposure and public defecation charges.
