Man Arrested for Criminal Mischief and Trespass after Defecating in Grocery Store - 05/24/16
On May 23, 2016, at about 10:00pm, Corvallis Police responded to the Downtown Safeway, 450 SW 3rd St. for a report of a male who had defecated in one of the aisles of the store. According to employees, a male subject was walking around inside the store when he stopped in an aisle, lowered his shorts, and defecated in the aisle. He then continued walking around the store, tracking feces as he went, until employees were finally able to get him to leave. The suspect left behind a bag of belongings, and the contents identified him as 54-year-old Tim Kielty of Corvallis.

Officers later located Kielty in the 300 block of SW 7th St. after receiving a report from a resident that a naked, intoxicated man was in his home. Kielty unlawfully entered the residence through an unlocked door, and went inside where he defecated on the victim's couch. When the victims demanded he leave, he ignored them and told them to bring him a towel. The victims were not known to Kielty. He was still inside the residence when Corvallis Police officers arrived.

Kielty appeared to be under the influence of an inhalant, and told officers he liked to use "whip its" which are cylinders of nitrous oxide used in making whipped cream. Kielty was taken into custody and transported to Good Samaritan Hospital for evaluation. He was later cited and released at the hospital. Kielty was charged with two counts of Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree, one count of Trespass in the First Degree, and one count of Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree.

No mug-shot is available from this incident.
