Police doubt they'll ever find the poop on who soiled offices

St. Paul police say it's unlikely that a man who entered a Minnesota government office building Sunday and defecated in several rooms will be caught.

Police department spokesman Tom Walsh said the unknown culprit who entered the Minnesota Homeland Security and Emergency Management building at 444 Cedar St. in downtown St. Paul probably didn't target the building and apparently entered the empty offices through a door that wasn't secured. The mess was found and reported to police by government employees Monday morning. The building was not broken into, Walsh said.

Surveillance cameras did capture images of the suspect, but the description rendered from the images is so broad that an arrest is unlikely.

"They would be charged with trespassing, and there are some charges that attach to the rest of it, but the likelihood of finding this individual is remote," he said.
