Spokane business owner fed up with feces, unwanted surprises at work


SPOKANE, Wash. -A Spokane business owner says enough is enough after finding human feces in front of her doorstep three days in a row.

The incidences happened at Neat Old Stuff located at 3rd and Bernard.

The shop's owner, CP Phare, has been in the same location for the last decade and says suspicious activity has ramped up in the last year, but nothing like what's been happening over the last few days.

"There's like surprise packages usually two-to-three times a week," said Phare. "Lately it's been a dropping every day, massive droppings and just nastiness." 

Spokane Police say there is help for business owners experiencing criminal activity on their property. 

It's called CPTED or Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design. 

Police say improving lighting, banning on-street parking, removing litter, repairing and renovating the building, and installing fences and security cameras can discourage people from engaging in criminal activity.
