Woman Steals Dog Poop Receptacle

By Julia Lane, December 2008

Some people will go to any lengths to prevent dog poop near their yard. In this case, Carrie Fosdale of Algonquin, IL, literally took matters into her own hands. When her homeowners association refused to remove the community dog waste station installed near her townhome, Fosdale stole the waste bucket and hid it in her garage. A warrant went out for her arrest and she surrendered herself to the Algonquin police. She was released on $100 bond. If convicted, she faces up to one year in jail and a $2,500 fine.
