PLEASANT GROVE, Utah (AP) - Evidence of a sewage leak is again all around one Utah police department, spurring talk about a new building and an online fundraiser to replace one clerk’s ruined shoes.

Pleasant Grove Police Chief Mike Smith told the Daily Herald (http://bit.ly/1gDJVwh ) for a Thursday report that a sewage leak happens several times a year, and efforts to find the source have failed.

Flooding Wednesday hit the evidence vault in a boiler room and unused elevator shaft.

Smith blames old pipes, an old building and a bad location.

He says voters have rejected a bond proposal for a new public safety building.

The Herald reports a gofundme account raised money to replace evidence technician Linda Chipman’s shoes.

Smith says damage to evidence is being evaluated and the leaky pipe has been patched.
