At least eight times since early December, the owner of the Natick Outdoor Store made an unpleasant discovery when he arrived at work - a pile of human poop.
On Wednesday, Natick Police arrested Andrea F. Grocer, 51, of Ashland, in the parking lot of the store at 38 North Ave. where they found her getting ready to use it as a toilet once again, authorities said.
“I’m so happy they arrested her,” said Natick Outdoor Store owner Henry Kanner. “I have no idea who she is. This has been ongoing. She has defecated quite often over here. There’s nothing more disgusting coming into your parking lot in the morning and seeing a pile of human excrement.”
Police said they had been investigating since the fecal matter began showing up last month.
“At first, [workers] thought it was an animal but then they noticed toilet paper and other wipes — items animals would not have access to,” said police spokeswoman Lt. Cara Ross
Andrew told police that she has irritable bowel syndrome and was on her way to her job as a nanny.
