Office IT guy becomes “IP” guy after hours
Raymond Foley, who formerly worked in the information technology department of the Iowa Farm Bureau, has been charged with second-degree criminal mischief after admitting that he urinated on the office chairs of comely female co-workers after they had left work. The 59-year-old allegedly confessed to the bizarre behavior after being confronted with videptape evidence, The Smoking Gun reports:
Foley had access to the Farm Bureau’s employee database, which contains photographs of workers. He would browse the database and “pick out attractive females and then on off hours, he would come into work, go to their desk, and urinate on their chairs.”
After employees began noticing the appearance of mysterious chair stains late last year, Farm Bureau officials decided to try and trap the seat soiler.
A video camera installed in February subsequently recorded Foley urinating on the chairs of at least four female coworkers, according to the police report. “There is possibly 2 to 3 other chairs urinated on that were out of view of the cameras,” according to cops.
Second-degree criminal mischief, is a felony in IA, Reuters reports:
State law defines the crime as "any damage, defacing, alteration, or destruction of property ... when done intentionally by one who has no right to so act." Second-degree mischief means the damage was between $1,000 and $10,000.
Police estimated that Foley’s spraying spree caused $4500 in damages to 10 chairs. If convicted, he could be sentenced to as much as five years in prison and a $7,500 fine.
