Hundreds of Gallons of Urine

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

I'm a painter. I do some portraiture as well as history with some landscape and still life thrown in for fun. I work in oil and in a somewhat Baroque style in all but my portrait paintings. This is why I get so worked up about the art posts. Sorry about that. :)

Anyway, with all the attention to detail given to rendering whatever finds it's way onto a canvass I get fatigued from time to time. A quick diversion like this is just the thing, especially for an ADD type like myself.

Happy to help! Netorama is my favorite spot to take my microbreaks; I do lots of non-repetitive, detailed work, so backing away and returning a minute or two later really helps me to get a fresh look and spot my errors. This site can be counted on for plenty of fun, innocuous and interesting content. Thanks!
