Stink bombs, ‘Super Fart Spray’ clear out Port Orchard Wal-Mart

South Kitsap Fire and Rescue personnel evacuated the Wal-Mart store on Bethel Road Sunday after a man reportedly released “stink bombs” and “super fart spray” in the building, the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office reported.

According to the incident report, a deputy responded to the store around 12:40 p.m. Feb. 7 after an employee called 911 to report that a man was throwing vials of liquid on the floor which released a “severe smell” that was causing headaches.

When the deputy arrived, approximately 75 customers and employees had been evacuated from the store and the suspect was in the parking lot. The suspect, a 51-year-old Belfair resident, reportedly admitted to the deputy that he had dumped the liquid in the store and said it was “stink bombs.”

He said he had dumped two boxes of the vials in the store, and had also sprayed a can of “Super Fart Spray” — which the deputy noted was the actual name of the product — in the store.

The suspect said he used the spray and the vials as a joke and he thought it would be funny.

SKFR personnel said the liquid was a temporary respiratory irritant, and they would be keeping people out of the store until the smell was gone. He said most people were not experiencing any symptoms and had left.

The suspect was not arrested, and the report was forwarded to the Kitsap County Prosecutor’s Office for potential charges.
