The South Kitsap Wal-Mart was evacuated Sunday after a 51-year-old Belfair man allegedly dumped “Stink Bombs” liquid and sprayed “Super Fart Spray” inside the store.
South Kitsap Fire & Rescue crews were sent to the store at about 12:40 p.m. Sunday for a reported hazardous-material incident. A man was reportedly throwing onto the floor a liquid that was creating a severe smell and causing headaches.
Deputies estimated about 75 shoppers and store employees were evacuated.
The man admitted dumping liquid onto the floor that made people nauseated. He said there were more bottles of the liquid in his glove compartment.
Deputies found bottles labeled “Stink Bombs,” which included a warning that the liquid is an irritant containing ammonium sulfide. He also handed the deputy a can called “Super Fart Spray,” which he said he also sprayed.
The man said he did it because he thought it would be funny.
The man’s girlfriend, a 46-year-old Belfair woman, said she was shopping and didn’t know what he was doing.
Fire crews kept the rest of the liquid and the man was banned from the Wal-Mart. A report was forwarded to the prosecutor’s office for review.
