An Australian man who worked in corporate America was forced to resign after residents in his neighborhood found out he was the “poo jogger” who kept taking public poops around the community.
64-year-old Andrew Douglas Macintosh worked as the national quality manager for Aveo and was a member of the Brisbane City Council’s Inclusive Board. However, he was forced to quit his job after it was learned that he was the “poo jogger” who was caught with his pants down taking a poop outside, news.com.au reported.
Macintosh is accused of dropping a deuce more than 30 times outside of an apartment complex in the Greenslopes neighborhood of Brisbane, according to media reports. Local residents had gotten fed up with the human feces being left around the place so they set up a sting operation to catch the culprit in the act.
“One of the neighbors set up a night camera and got a few images and so we had a time he was doing it, so then I decided to go and wait with a camera and I was there a few mornings and then last Friday I got him,” neighbor Steve Smith told news.com.au.
“There’s a red light which goes on before the camera’s flash goes off and he saw that and looked at me as the photograph was taken,” he said. “Then he just said, ‘Hello.’ At that point I decided to just walk away.”
Macintosh was charged with a single count of public nuisance. Aveo released a statement following his resignation.
“Until yesterday, Aveo Group was not aware of the charges laid against Mr. Macintosh,” a company spokesman said.
“Aveo Group is distressed and disappointed at the alleged incidents concerning Mr. Macintosh. He has tendered his resignation to the company today and is no longer an employee of Aveo Group. Aveo will continue to extend its support to Mr. Macintosh for help that he may require.”
