Police at Yale University are searching for a "stinker" who's been tossing human feces in student clothes dryers.

Dubbed the "poopetrator," they're being blamed for at least four incidents in the past month at Saybrook College, according to the Yale Daily News.

Police are investigating. And officials at the Ivy League school are considering changes in access to laundry rooms.

Early last month, Lucy Fleming opened a dryer in the Saybrook College laundry room and found her clothes soiled with human feces. They had also been urinated on.

She tried re-washing them, but they were ruined.

"I simultaneously wanted to throw up, cry and punch someone," she told the Daily News.

The culprit apparently struck again on Friday, hanging clothes soiled with feces on a clothesline in a courtyard of Berkeley College, according to the New Haven Register.
