Police Searching For Man Throwing Apples On Roofs

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) – One rotten apple spoils the bunch, but a man known as the “bad apple culprit” doesn’t stop at just one.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office in southwest Washington says someone has periodically been tossing apples on roofs. Sometimes the culprit leaves a note, as was the case when he recently struck at a home in Hazel Dell.

In the note, the culprit claimed he targeted five homes – three apples per house. He also wrote of his experience tossing apples at homes across the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon.

He says Portland “might be the best place on Earth for a hooligan riding a bicycle with a backpack full of apples.” That’s because there are bicyclists everywhere and it’s easy to get lost in the neighborhoods.

Deputies have released a surveillance image of the culprit in hopes the public can identify him.
