An Auburn man called police after finding what he thought was a pile of burnt papers on his front porch.
The man said nothing was on the porch when he went to bed at 1 a.m. on June 20. When he awoke the next morning and walked outside to get his sandals, he discovered the remnants of a small fire.
The investigating officer noticed that the burnt pile contained what appeared to be human feces inside a rolled up wad of toilet paper.
The man said he had no idea who would do such a “nasty” thing to him but suspects it may be “a racist issue.”
The man requested extra patrols for his residence.
