Woman Throws Feces at Menards Employee

Police say that employee confronted the woman after she tried to steal a video camera.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis police are looking for a woman who they say threw her own feces at an employee of an east side Menards Tuesday.

According to an incident report filed in the case, IMPD officers were dispatched to the Menards location at 7701 E. 42nd Street near Pendleton Pike around noon Tuesday.

They spoke with the store’s loss prevention officer. He told them he spotted a woman take a video camera out of its box and place it into her open personal bag.

When the loss prevention officer attempted to stop the woman from leaving the store, she “dug into her pants and pulled out a handful of feces and threw it at him, striking him on his chest.”

The loss prevention officer said the woman then ran out of the door.

Police said the stolen camera was eventually recovered, and investigators were able to recover surveillance video. The woman had not yet been identified.
