A Fairfield woman was charged with third-degree criminal mischief Tuesday for allegedly smearing dog feces on the door handles of people's cars, police said.
Kimberly Porter, 23, of New England Avenue (which is close to the Fairfield Metro train station), told police that she was upset commuters park on her street and make it difficult to get in and out of the driveway, according to the report.
So she made a statement, allegedly.
Police investigated the claims several people had made since Friday, when they reported finding fecal matter on their driver's side door handles.
The responding officer knocked on a few doors of residents who claimed they did not own dogs and then came upon Porter's home. She was holding back a large pit bull when the officer answered the door, according to the report.
At first Porter denied smearing the feces on the car. She reportedly told police that her car had also been targeted and that she had just cleaned it. However, the officer noticed Porter's car was covered in the dust that accumulates with every day driving and it did not appear to have been cleaned recently, according to the report.
After police noticed what appeared to be the supply of dog waste in Porter's backyard, she reportedly admitted to being the culprit.
Porter was released on a promise to appear in court on Jan. 8.
