JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - Officials in an Arkansas county have a plea for courthouse visitors: Please stop urinating in our elevator.

Craighead County officials hope new security cameras will deter the steady stream of culprits who have been relieving themselves in the courthouse elevator in Jonesboro, a college town about 115 miles (185 kilometers) northeast of Little Rock.

Maintenance workers say the problem has persisted for years - even though the restrooms are only about 25 feet (8 meters) from the elevator.

Officials tell The Jonesboro Sun (http://bit.ly/2ssykJW ) that the cameras, installed last fall, have caught three men in the act, one of whom has been cited for disorderly conduct and fined $105. A third instance was recorded Monday, and county officials say they plan to issue a citation.
