Police continue to hunt for the person who has been defecating on children's spark slides over the last five to six months.

The Ann Arbor News reports that police and city officials in Ypsilanti, Mich. are looking for the suspect they refer to as the "mystery pooper," who defecates on the same slides in the same park each time, and only at night.

Police installed a hidden camera to try to capture the suspect in the act. City officials and friends of the park plan to stake it out at night as temperatures get warmer.

Department of Public Works employees are tasked with checking the slides daily and cleaning up any human waste.
