Police in Newtown, Connecticut, investigated a report of suspicious activity at a vacant house in Sandy Hook. What they found was certainly unusual, but not exactly criminal.
Newtown Police Lieutenant Richard Robinson said that an investigation found that someone had left between 200 and 300 one-gallon plastic jugs filled with urine within the house, which is located on the west side of Route 34, between Johnny Appleseed Drive and Sherman Street. Although unusual, the matter does not constitute criminal activity, he said.
State police had referred to Newtown police a report that suspicious activity had occurred at the house, Lt Robinson said. While investigating on the evening of April 25, Newtown police determined that someone had forced open a rear door at the house, he said.
After finding the large number of jugs of what was then an unknown brown liquid substance within the house, town police contacted the state police’s narcotics unit to determine whether there was some illegal drug aspect to the situation.
After it was determined that the jugs contained urine, an environmental cleanup company came to dispose of it. The house, which which had not been "officially" occupied for some time, was condemned due to deteriorating conditions. Link -via Arbroath
