A man with a penchant for serial puking on vehicles behind a Markham restaurant has been busted, York regional Police say.
The bizarre circumstances are enough to make anyone gag.
Cops say that the vomit villain struck more than 30 times during the last four years. Customers and staff at all-you-can-eat Italian eatery, Frankie Tomatto’s on Woodbine Ave. have emerged midday to discover their cars doused with an oily liquid.
Quick-thinking management were determined to bust the bad news barfer and installed surveillance cameras in the lot at the rear of the building.
Cameras captured the man hurling all over the vehicles — always between noon and 2 p.m. Unfortunately, they could not get a clear picture of the man — or his plate.
Newer cameras were able to make out the licence plate and they passed the information and video onto cops.
“We’ve laid charges of mischief against a man from Oshawa in connection,” Const. Laura Nicolle told Global News
“It does look like there is some element of this being intentional, where he’s actually intentionally vomiting on the vehicles.”
The man — believed to be in his mid-40s — works in the area, police said.
They have not released the serial spewer’s name.

Grocery store chain Metro Inc. says it will eliminate about 280 jobs starting in 2021 as part of a $400-million overhaul of its Ontario distribution network.
The company says the move to modernize and automate its network will mean the loss of about 180 full-time and 100 part-time positions.
The announcement follows comments by Metro in August that it would study automation as it looked to cut costs in the face of the Ontario government’s plan to raise the minimum wage next year.
Metro has six distribution centres in Ontario including four in Toronto and two in Ottawa that employ a total of more than 1,500 workers.
It says its existing distribution network in Toronto no longer meets the needs of its business.
The company plans to modernize the operations in Toronto between 2018 and 2023 with the building of a new fresh distribution facility and a new frozen distribution centre.
“This investment will enable Metro to continue its growth and expansion in the Ontario market,” Metro chief executive Eric La Fleche said in a statement.
“With a new and modernized supply chain infrastructure, we will be even more responsive to the needs of our customers.”
