What a downright crappy thing to do.

Cops were dispatched to a CVS drug store in Jacksonville last month due to a dispute between a clerk and a customer who had returned ready-to-use enema saline laxatives — and had allegedly done so several times in the recent past, according to a news release from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Each time CVS personnel would return the box of enemas back to the shelf for resale because the product appeared to be unused, according to the release.

But one CVS worker had thought it was strange that the same man was making returns with the same product. So that employee decided to check a box of the returned enemas.

Upon opening the box, the employee found all six the enemas had been used and the box had been resealed so it would look as though the box had not been opened. A check of three additional boxes on the shelf determined they had all been previously used, the report stated.

A CVS employee who observed the customer’s vehicle, obtained the tag number and contacted deputies who then were able to determine that the man had purchased enemas once using a credit card, deputies said.

That transaction, as well as other purchases at the store, and the tag number led police to a possible suspect.

Samples were taken of the fluid inside the enema bottles and then sent the Florida Department of Health for testing. Fecal matter was also located on some of the returned enema bottles, s, according to the report.

Some fecal matter has also been collected as evidence and submitted to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) for testing.

The individual has been identified, and was arrested on an unrelated outstanding warrant.

The investigation continues.
