Police: Berkshire Road Home Found Filled with Jugs of Urine

Police say the jars were found during a check on the home after a report of suspicious activity.


Police say they found a strange discovery after responding to a report of suspicious activity at a Berkshire Road home on April 25.

According to reports, local police were referred to the house by an anonymous tip originally sent to Connecticut State Police. When they arrived at the house, police say no one answered the door and police found a back door broken down. They say they went inside the building to check for criminal activity or anyone who might need help. While checking the house, they found "numerous opaque jugs of brownish liquid," according to reports.

Police called the Statewide Narcotics Taskforce, according to reports, who responded along with the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and Clean Harbors. After an investigation, police say the brownish liquid was identified as urine.

A man was questioned by DEEP officials, but not arrested, in connection with the 300 gallons of urine, according to the Danbury News-Times.

According to police, the incident has been referred to the Newtown Building Department, Health Department and Fire Marshal's Office for possible further action.

You have a problem with protecting the environment? You want to go back to rivers that catch fire, and smog so thick you could rarely see Long Island from the CT shore, and the respiratory illness that goes along with that?

What was his crime? Saving urine is a crime? When cops saw no one was home they needed to report his jugs of urine why? Why were they searching shelves? Who was trespassing in his back yard to notice the broken door? Or was it a concerned neighbor (So terribly concerned that they didn't know him well enough to know he saved his urine)? What was the suspicious activity that the "Anonymous Tipster called in?" Still much more to the story...

Clearly you do not live in Newtown. This is an abandoned, rundown house on a main road. It's been a disgrace and an eyesore for at least 8 years (when I moved here). If I were a neighbor, I most certainly would have called if I saw the backdoor smashed in! Nobody has "lived" in that house in years. If someone were living there, then that person was a squatter, and that's clearly illegal.

Thank you "TEACHER" for the update that the home was abandoned, Once again incomplete information is reported. As far as the home being a disgrace, I do not know the owners financial situation, state of health or circumstances that lead to the home becoming an alleged eyesore to the neighborhood. As far as abandoned goes I believe the report stated that a Man was questioned by DEEP officials, but not arrested. Was this Man the owner of the abandoned property?
