Virginia police seek urinal vandal
Police in Virginia say they are searching for a vandal who damaged urinals and posed as a plumber in at least seven Fredericksburg restaurants.
Natatia Bledsoe, a police spokeswoman, said the man damaged urinals in at least seven restaurants in the Central Park area Friday and posed as a plumber in an attempt to get the eateries to pay him to fix the toilets, The Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star reported Thursday.
The spokeswoman said police are searching for suspect Timothy Banks, 39, of Fort Washington, Md., who was identified through pictures obtained after a witness took down his license plate number. She said Banks has been charged with similar offenses in Virginia's Prince William and Fairfax counties.
