esidents of the Hunan capital of Changsha can once again go about their business in peace and comfort, safe in the knowledge that the city’s infamous “brown bomber” has been locked away.
In recent months, a once successful restaurant in the city had been nearly driven to ruin by the bags of feces that were regularly falling from the sky onto its doorstep with customers choosing to stay away lest they be struck by the smelly ordnance, according to local news reports.
The restaurant’s owners, a pair of brothers, contacted the police over the matter, however, officers were unable to identify any upstairs residents who might wish the eatery harm. After the shit just kept on falling, week after week, month after month, one of the brothers, surnamed Yin, decided to take matters into his own hands, getting up early to stake out the roof of their 19-story building, hoping to catch the culprit brown-handed.
At 8 am on the morning of August 24th, Yin watched as a man arrived on the roof with a bag of feces in hand and prepared to drop it off the side. Yin then rushed out to stop the man, who dropped the bag on the roof and tried to flee. Instead, Yin seized the man and called his younger brother to tell him the news. Yin’s brother then contacted the police who brought the man back to the station for questioning.
At the station, the 32-year-old man surnamed Lu admitted to dropping the bags of shit on local businesses because he was jealous of their success and wanted to destroy them. Lu’s anger came from his own disappointment and frustration with life. After graduating from college, he had struggled to find a good job and now works as a maintenance guy.
Police say that Lu may have been responsible for more than 20 scat attacks in the area. He has been placed in detention for 15 days.
