Merrimack police said Jonathan Vertigans didn’t just take an ill-advised dip in someone else’s pool, but also left a disgusting gift behind for the owner.
Vertigans, 27, of 92 Walnut St., Manchester, turned himself in to Merrimack police Thursday on an arrest warrant for criminal mischief and criminal trespassing, police said.
Police were called to a home in the Crosswoods Path Development on June 14 after a homeowner described seeing a heavyset man in the backyard strip down to boxer shorts and jump in the swimming pool, police said.
The owner went outside after the man left and found that he had defecated in the pool, police said.
Police investigated and eventually issued the arrest warrant for Vertigans. He was placed on $5,000 personal recognizance bail but will be held for 72 hours due to a parole violation, police said.
Vertigans will be arraigned in Merrimack District Court on June 20, police said.
