JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A Juneau landlord is considering using DNA to solve a case of clogged sewage pipes at a local trailer park.

The Juneau Empire (https://is.gd/oLtbNr) reports that Wright Services Inc. recently warned tenants at its Waterside trailer park not to flush certain items that tend to cause regular sewage blocks.

A Sept. 4 letter signed by property manager Debbie Stevens says there have been discussions to conduct “DNA testing of female products and charge the person responsible for damage.”

Stevens on Friday declined to comment to The Associated Press. She referred questions to company general manager Donna Busick, who did not immediately return a call for comment.

Some Waterside tenants perceive the warning as a threat, but they also doubt it’s legal to require them to submit to a DNA test.
