HOUSTON - Houston authorities are looking for a man accused of something you'd expect from a dog, relieving himself on other people's property. Neighbors say they're tired of the mess.
The man seen in the surveillance pictures is someone deputies are looking for. He's accused of committing a strange crime. One that has people in a woodland heights neighborhood grossed out.
Police say he's been repeatedly going to the bathroom in people's front yards, leaving behind a stinky mess for homeowners to clean up. He's hit one home on Byrne Street six times. He's hit others too.

"It's definitely not a nice thing to do to people, going to the bathroom in their driveway is not nice," said Patrick Reese.
"This is our neighborhood, whatever people might think should go on around here. Pooping is not okay," said Aimee Parsons.
The topic makes residents chuckle, but constable deputies with precinct one aren't laughing. In fact, they're actively looking for him. He strikes at night or early in the morning.
One homeowner set up a camera in a tree to try and catch him, and was able to record images of him. If you look closely, in the upper left corner, the white things are pieces of paper towel.
One homeowner tells KPRC-TV he brings them along to clean himself up, then leaves them behind on the sidewalk.
Residents who keep waking up to this mess are fed up.
"We don't want that happening. We don't want dogs pooping in our yards why would we want a human pooping? It is very strange though," said Parsons.
