Apparently, they have no Xerox machine

People in the Nebraska town of Valentine are in a dither over a vandal who leaves greasy butt-prints on the windows of businesses.

The night prowler has gotten away with this strange behavior for more than a year, though police say there was a pause during the fall and winter, presumably because of cold weather.

The man apparently gets smeared up good with lotion or Vaseline, then goes to work on the windows of churches, hotels and stores. People show up the next morning to find his "gross" calling card.

Police say some of the vandalism might've been by copycats, which makes it all the odder.

Extra points: Local folks call the vandal the "Butt Bandit."
