CLARK COUNTY, WA (KPTV) -

A man who is "apple-ing" homes in the Vancouver area left behind a rambling note about his history of tossing fruit onto rooftops.

Clark County deputies said they have received occasional complaints for a few years from homeowners finding apples on their roofs or in their rain gutters.

At times, a nonsensical note has been left behind, as well.

That was the case Monday at a home in Hazel Dell.

A homeowner found apples on the roof with a note that started by saying, "To The Good Citizens of Callisto, I crossed the Rubicon River."

The note then proceeds to say, "Today I did five houses. My backpack had fifteen apples in it, three apples per house."

A surveillance camera captured images of the suspect, who is described by deputies as the "bad apple culprit."

In his note Monday, the man described areas he has hit and the sounds apples make when they land on a roof.

"I've broken a few windows, but that happens rarely," the note states.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to contact Clark County Deputy Steve Fox at 360-397-2211, Ext. 5483 or Steve.Fox@Clark.Wa.Gov.
