Burlington Police Investigating After Urine Found in Library Restroom Soap Dispenser and Air Freshener
BURLINGTON — Chief Michael Kent reports that the Burlington Police Department is actively investigating an incident in which a suspect urinated in bathroom soap dispensers and air fresheners at the Burlington Public Library.

Upon arrival, officers learned that a visitor to the library reported finding a cup with urine in it on a shelf in the men’s restroom the previous day.
