Police are looking for a man who has been leaving bottle of an unknown yellow liquid around Niagara Region.

The suspect has been seen on security cameras across the Region, but mostly in Niagara-on-the-Lake, placing bottles of the liquid on resident’s porches, decks and backyards.

Police don’t know what the liquid is, reporting only that it is non-explosive. Most of the bottles are left behind under cover of darkness in the early hours of the morning.

The bottle appeared regularly around town throughout April, May, June and July. There was a bit of a lull in their appearance throughout August but more showed up on September 15.

Police are trying to identify the suspect, but have only vague descriptive information. They believe he is a white man in his 20s standing about 5’10” with a slim build. He is officially wanted on trespassing charges.

He has been recorded driving a grey four-door sedan, possibly a Honda Civic.

Anyone with information pertinent to the investigation can call the Niagara Police non-emergency line at (905) 688-4111 ext. 2200, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at (905) 436-8477.
