HOLMDEL, NJ --- The case of the mystery pooper has been solved and it's a school district's superintendent.
According to the New Jersey police, Thomas Tramaglini, 42, was charged on Monday with defecating in public. Tramaglini was allegedly caught on surveillance cameras taking an early morning poop on the Holmdel High School football field.
Tramaglini, who lives approximately three miles from the high school, was arrested when he was found at the school's athletic fields.
Police said the school decided to set up cameras after employees reported finding human feces on a regular.
It's still unclear why Tramaglini decided to use the football field as his bathroom. It's also unclear how long the allege lewd acts have been occurring.
Kenliworth Public Schools placed Tramaglini on paid leave and released a statement via their Facebook account:
"Earlier today, we learned of municipal court charges facing our current superintendent of schools in Holmdel, NJ. Given the nature of those charges, he asked for and was granted a paid leave of absence," the school system wrote.
Tramaglini was unanimously appointed to lead the Kenilworth School District by the Kenilworth Board of Education in 2015 and makes nearly $150,000 per year.
He is charged with lewdness and littering.
