COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KMGH) – Colorado Springs police say a woman has repeatedly done her businesses in people’s yards over the past several weeks.

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, near Briargate Parkway. 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.
