    Deputies are looking for a man who is accused of defecating in multiple yards in a Houston neighborhood.

    Deputies are looking for a man who is accused of defecating in multiple yards in a Houston neighborhood.

    The man has allegedly struck one home on Byrne Street so many times it forced the homeowners to install security cameras to catch the man in the act.

    Police are looking for the man seen in the surveillance photos, saying he has defecated in the front yard of that home six times -- and has spread his waste to other homes in the area.

    "This is our neighborhood. Whatever people think should go on around here -- pooping is not OK," neighbor Aimee Parsons told KPRC-TV in Houston.

    Though the topic makes residents chuckle, constable deputies with Precinct 1 in Houston aren't laughing.  They have been actively patrolling the neighborhood throughout the night and during the early morning hours to try and catch the culprit.

    In the surveillance images recorded of the man, small white pieces of paper towels -- used by the man to clean himself -- are visible.

    "We don't want dogs pooping in our yards, why would we want a human? It's very strange," Parsons said.
