A CROOK broke into the home of an HGTV star, took some belongings and left something behind—poop.
Karen E Laine, who is on the show Good Bones about renovating homes along with her daughter Mina Starsiak Hawk, said her home in Indianapolis, Indiana, was robbed last Saturday.
“Someone came in, stole more things, and pooped in the garage,” she said, according to Fox 59 on Friday.
“It’s sort of an epithet to say I poop on you.”
E Laine said it is the second time a burglar has left feces in her garage and the third time someone has broken into her home in Indianapolis.
In the latest incident, a crook entered a back gate of her property and got into the garage and stole E Laine’s purse as the family slept.
It occurred the same day that another one of E Laine’s daughters, Kelsy Gray, had her wedding in Indianapolis.
The suspect in the first break-in stole her husband’s bicycle and pooped in a bucket inside the garage.
E Laine said the crook went through the bathroom in the garage, so the nasty act “seems very personal and intentional.”
“They know we have a bathroom. That’s what makes it feel personal because it’s not, ‘Oh, I need to go to the bathroom.’ It’s I’m going to leave my feces behind for you to clean up,” E Laine said.
However, as a former deputy prosecutor, the reality TV star has acted quickly to catch the culprit.
She found out where credit cards from her stolen purse were swiped and turned the information over to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
“I said you need a warrant today to get an address on this,” she said, adding that an investigator recovered surveillance footage “so we may have people on video.”
“Probably not the house you want to burglarize because I was immediately on the case!” E Laine said.
As police continue to investigate the crime, the poop prank may end up backfiring on the crook.
Investigators are analyzing the feces, according to E Laine, for DNA.
