The villains clogging tool was an unconventional one, according to police. He would take a 20-ounce soda bottle and jam it into a womens toilet at the Deland Community Center in the city. Once hed lodged a bottle deep in the pipes, the vandal would run-off leaving behind a messy surprise for the city to clean up.
As of March, the serial clogger had struck three times just this year, according to Joe Kerlin, the citys parks and forestry superintendent. But the clogger had been even busier in past years, Kerlin told the Sheboygan Press blocking the same public womens toilet 14 times in 2017, and 12 the year before.
That substantial tally (29 cloggings but whos counting?) only includes incidents since the city began keeping track, Kerlin told the newspaper. And it wasnt until halfway into 2016 it dawned on authorities that a serial clogger was on the loose. Kerlin estimated that the city has spent between $2,000 and $3,000 dealing with the cloggers reign of terror.
A lot of times we can just fish em out, Kerlin told the newspaper, describing the best case scenario. Especially obstinate bottles mean plumbers have to remove the entire toilet.

bet it is a trans-gender wack-job, but the press doesn’t dare say that publicly.
Reminds of a stall painter we had in the Negev.
I thought the headline was saying that the culprit had been identified and caught (Flushed him out). I guess not yet.
This individual always went to the same Women’s Room to clog their toilets.
From my experience as caregiver for mentally ill adults, I have my theory:
My guess is someone was somehow getting a sexual thrill from all the ‘clogging and making a terrible mess’.
That would illustrate the overlapping of several fetishes.
As The Doors sang “People Are Strange”.
Really? This person needs artificial help for their logjams?
What a poser!
Go natural or stay home!
They say a 33 year old male was arrested but they don’t name him.
I cant believe that the community center had a womens toilet.
Well gee, I guess no one in the city could figure out to put a 50 dollar hidden camera to watch the area where the restroom is and wait to see who goes in with a 20oz bottle but exits without it.
And he did this about 30x?
It’s just a performance art nutjob.
OK, just kidding, I have no idea.
who ever did such a thing would have been destroyed in the press after it became public.
see post #2 answers why no name given. IMO.
Didnt realize Maplethorpe lived in Deland.
Thats what they should refer to this as. Maplethorping.
The Snoid from Sheboygan/
I wonder what the code is for serial toilet clogger.
How do they know it is a he and not a she?
“They say a 33 year old male was arrested but they dont name him.”
He’s been placed on sewercide watch.
A crappy story with a happy ending!
So ... does he hate women or plumbers or what?
