Feces, urine bottles found stockpiled during DNC

Well whaddaya know. The Post:
Among items police said they seized during the Democratic National Convention were bags of human waste stockpiled in LoDo and an estimated 200 bottles of urine in a vacant house, Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper's office revealed Thursday. . . .

The mayor said that a stockpile of pipe was found close to police headquarters and a bag of quick-connect brass fittings for propane bottles and 6- to 8-foot heavy-duty chain also was seized. PVC pipe was found in an alley in Lower Downtown. Nails and screws were found scattered in LoDo streets. In another incident, two propane tanks were found chained to a fence in a LoDo parking lot.

The city also found material for a "sleeping dragon," which protesters form by using PVC pipe and chains to link themselves together, the mayor said.

On Aug. 24, police found "multiple bags of feces," the mayor's statement said. And on Aug. 26, a vacant house containing an estimated 200 bottles of urine was found.

"We had a lot of eyes and ears looking for this stuff, and they knew what to look for," said Sue Cobb, the mayor's spokeswoman.
