7-Eleven Slurry

AUGUST 2--In one of the more vile episodes to recently transpire inside a 7-Eleven, a Florida man yesterday dumped a bucket containing human feces and urine inside a convenience store in St. Petersburg, according to police.

Investigators allege that Damian Simms, 41, arrived at the 7-Eleven around 1:30 AM Wednesday and proceeded to toss the slurry of human waste on the floor of the business. The liquid splashed on merchandise valued at $28.

Pictured at right, Simms apparently obtained the waste from a portable toilet. “The defendant threw a bucket of port a potty liquid human feces and urine,” reported Officer Donald Ziglar.

In late-May, Simms was trespassed from the 7-Eleven and “returned tonight with a bucket of human feces,” wrote Ziglar, who noted an “indication of alcohol influence.” The incident was recorded by store security cameras.

Charged with trespass and criminal mischief, both misdemeanors, Simms is being held in the county jail in lieu of $300 bond. Upon his release from custody, Simms has been barred from having contact with the 7-Eleven (seen below) or the store’s manager.

Simms, a convicted felon, has a lengthy rap sheet that includes convictions for burglary; weapons possession; grand theft; animal cruelty; disorderly intoxication; loitering; drunk driving; and carrying a concealed weapon. (2 pages)
