Neighbours banding together in an attempt to capture the person they believe has defecated on their properties multiple times in a year has resulted in a man being charged.
It is alleged Andrew Douglas Macintosh, 64, from Brisbane, Australia, would regularly jog around his community and defecate on his neighbours’ driveways. Queensland Police confirmed a 64-year-old man had been issued with a public nuisance infringement (a $378 fine) in relation to a single incident.
A former member on the Brisbane City Council advisory board, Macintosh was working as a national quality manager for retirement village property and investment group Aveo before resigning from his position on Thursday morning.
“Aveo Group is distressed and disappointed at the alleged incidents concerning Mr Macintosh,” the company said in a statement, explaining it was unaware of the charges until Wednesday.
“Aveo will continue to extend its support to Mr Macintosh for help that he may require.”
