VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Deputies have located a man accused of throwing apples onto rooftops in the Vancouver area, but he is not facing any criminal charges at this time.

The Clark County Sheriff's Office posted surveillance images on Facebook this week of a man on the doorstep of a Hazel Dell home.

Investigators believe he tossed apples onto the home's roof and left behind a nonsensical note that said, among other things, "Today I did five houses. My backpack had fifteen apples in it, three apples per house."

He described it as "apple-ing."

Deputies dubbed him the "bad apple culprit" and asked for the public's help identifying him. The sheriff's office also reported receiving occasional complaints for several years about similar incidents.

A Clark County Sheriff's Office spokesman said while they located the man this week, there is not enough evidence for criminal charges or citations in this case.

No other details were released by deputies about the "bad apple culprit."
