Police are trying to identify a man they say has pooped on at least 19 parked cars in Akron, Ohio, over the last two years, News Net 5 reported.

Alright, here's the edited #poopgangsta photo. 19 cars and counting! Someone's got a vendetta..

The news channel tweeted an ~edited~ photo of the mystery pooper on Wednesday.

The most recent incident took place Wednesday morning, Akron police Lt. Rick Edwards told BuzzFeed News.

A resident filed a report with police after snapping a photo of the full moon happening in his driveway. The resident had filed another pooping report as well, Edwards said, but told police it had happened another five or six times before.

Police then started looking for similar instances and found 19 within the span of about two years, Edwards said.

"I'm sure there are more victims out there," Edwards said.

Police released the photo to try to identify the man. Edwards said they're not sure if the man's motivation is criminal mischief or a mental health issue.

"It's important for us to look at both angles," he said.

All of the reported incidents were in the same neighborhood of Akron, 19 Action News reported. Police say the man targeted hoods of parked cars, but he also left his turds inside unlocked vehicles.

Fecal matter was also found smeared on the windows of some of the cars, police said.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Akron Police Department at 330-275-2552.
