The Continuing Saga of the Torched Toilets
Clorox offers $5K to wipe out SF 'toilet torcher'

The Clorox Company is offering a $5,000 reward and a year's supply of toilet cleaning products for tips leading to the arrest of San Francisco's notorious portable potty pyromaniac.
The Oakland-based chemical company deployed a "potty patrol" team in the city Friday to make residents aware of its offer marrying marketing and community service.
Since November, more than two dozen construction site toilets have been set on fire in the city, causing an estimated $50,000 in property damage and leaving a trail of foul-smelling evidence.
Perhaps one of the sturdier, French stand-alone toilets (see photo) would deter the vandal(s). But then again, they really aren't that portable.
This perpetrator probably had an early childhood traumatic experience with a traveling toilet.
