A Norfolk County man has been charged after he decided to take the term “poop deck” a little too literally.

The Ontario Provincial Police said on Sunday between 10:55 a.m. and 11:10 a.m., a man went to a Cedar Drive residence in Turkey Point and allegedly defecated on a deck located on the property. He then ran to a vehicle and left the area.

Police were contacted the following day and after reviewing video surveillance footage of the area, officers were able to identify a suspect.

A 25-year-old man from Norfolk County is now charged with mischief in connection with the incident. He is scheduled to appear in court in Simcoe at a later date.
