A man who was angry that he was evicted from a trailer park, took revenge by dumping a bucket of feces into the public swimming pool, according to police in Florida.
Pinellas County police said that they have arrested 54-year-old Thomas Lee Mason, after being accused of intentionally contaminating the community pool at the Embassy Mobile Home Park.
Mason was charged with one count of criminal mischief. He was booked into the Pinellas County jail, and his bail was set at $150.
According to the police investigation, Mason broke into the Embassy Mobile Home Park on Thursday night. Witnesses told police that they saw Mason holding a bucket in his hand and dumping its contents in the pool.
Mason then left the area with the same bucket. The contents in the bucket was feces. Mason was angry about his eviction from the trailer park and is suspected of several criminal mischief events in the last week.
The police estimated it would cost $300 in chemicals and cleaning products to disinfect the pool.
