'Phantom sh***er' caught on video doing business outside Dublin tattoo parlour
A man was caught on CCTV dumping a load outside a tattoo parlour in west Dublin as morning commuters passed by.
The footage shows an individual casually strolling past the premises of Guns N' Tattoos in Lucan.
Doubling back, the man drops his shorts before defecating on the wall of the parlour.
Disgusted employees had to sanitize the wall following the brazen act by the 'phantom sh***er', who swiftly took off after his gross drop.
Stephen Dowling, who opened the shop at midday, told the Irish Daily Star: "It absolutely stank.
"I couldn't believe it. It was disgusting.
"I thought it might have been an animal or something.
"I walked up to open the shop at around midday and there it was, a s**t against the wall.
After a thorough CCTV search, Stephen found footage of the culprit.
"Eventually I spotted it just before 7.30am.
"There's a main road with shops on it about 10 yards away. Cars would have been driving past.
"We've no idea who it was or where he came from. The only thing we thought of was that he must have been going home after a sesh.
"You'd have to be pretty steaming to think it was acceptable to do what he did. He was up and away in no time, six or seven seconds.
"I'll never forget the smell of it. It was completely vile."
