Radnor Store Finds Repulsive Waste In Its Parking Lot — Twice

RADNOR, Pa. (CBS) – Employees at a Bed, Bath & Beyond store in Delaware County, Pa. have made a disturbing — and potentially dangerous — find in the store’s parking lot. And it’s happened more than once.

Workers at the store on Lancaster Avenue in Radnor Township thought the huge trash bag in the lot might have held a purchase someone accidentally left behind.

“It was heavy, so they opened it up, thinking maybe someone left a package there. They realized there was some weight to it,” says Radnor police sergeant Andy Block. “That’s when they opened the bag and lifted the lid and they saw …”

Vomit. About 30 pounds’ worth, inside a generically marked white medical waste container.

Sgt. Block says Bed, Bath & Beyond had a biohazard waste collection firm remove it.

But it happened again, a week to the day later, on June 5th. That’s when the store called the cops, fearing a serial sicko.

“It could be considered harassing because it occurred more than once, and also recklessly endangering another person may fit,” notes Block.

He says it may be that someone was paid to get rid of the waste properly, but instead pocketed the cash and chucked the upchuck haphazardly.

Police are hoping that someone with information will give them a call at 610-688-0503.

    Maybe it was a disgruntled employee.

    It’s probably being left there by a Bulimic person. They have to get it out of their house because vomit errodes pipes and they don’t want to wreck their own plumbing.
    Isn’t it ironic that they care more about the pipes in their home than the inside of their mouth and throat?
    I saw a show on TV about a girl who did this. She threw her vomit away in random dumpsters.

    The media says you’re on camera 80% of your day.
    Every big box store says you’re on camera.

    Why do most of these stories end up asking for help from the community.
