If you've been pooping on the slides at Ypsilanti's Prospect Park, we kindly ask that stop. Immediately.

Police have installed cameras in an attempt to catch the mystery pooper who has been defecating on children's slides in the park for the last several months. Authorities have confirmed that the feces being left behind are human waste.

According to M-Live, Ypsilanti Police Chief Tony DeGiusti issued an email to officers patrolling the area.

"We have a problem in Prospect Park with a miscreant that does not understand the difference between a children’s playground slide and a toilet,” the email stated. “Apparently this extremely misguided individual feels the need to defecate on the slide despite the cold weather. This has been an ongoing problem at this location. Please make frequent checks in the area and record them on your daily log.”

Officials suspect the mystery pooper has been striking only at night, as the human waste is typically discovered in the morning.
