Local Matters: Old North End Resident's Car Soiled

BURLINGTON - When you've got to go, you've got to go, but there's a time and a place. In the front seat of someone's car isn't it.

A presumed vandal who just couldn't hold it any longer - but didn't want to get caught with his pants down - broke into a Jeep parked on Monroe Street the night of October 22 and urinated all over the upholstery, according to the husband of the vehicle's owner.

"It was disgusting," says a pissed-off Cris Prong, who used his own steam cleaner to sop up the mess. He says the vandal also rifled through the glove box and may have made off with 50 cents, at most. While Prong is pretty sure he was cleaning up someone's urine, he acknowledges that someone may have simply slept in the vehicle overnight.

"It was cold that night," says Prong. "Maybe it was just a really stinky guy . . . Maybe that person will read this and say, 'Wow, do I really stink that bad?'"
