Gross – Disgusting discovery in OakhurstPhoto by Dan Whisenhunt
A few residents in Decatur’s Oakhurst community have had a nasty problem with their mailboxes.
According to a Decatur Police report, “an unknown person” has been placing urine-filled plastic water bottles inside mailboxes around the 1600 block of Oakview Road.
The report filed this week says it has happened to one resident on three separate occasions in May, and happened to a neighbor at least once. When the resident who filed the complaint called the U.S. Post Office , the Post Office recommended contacting the Decatur Police Department.
The report says the neighbor found one bottle in their mailbox, but couldn’t tell what it was and threw it in the trash.
“(The victim who filed the report) kept two of the three bottles of urine and images of the bottles were taken and attached to the report,” the police report says.
