CRIME STOPPERS CRIME OF THE WEEK 09-30-11
POLICE SEEK SUSPECTS WHO DUMP TIRES AROUND TOWN
The same suspects are believed to be dumping used truck tires in vacant lots and desert areas around town for the past several years,
Crime Stoppers “Crime of the Week.”
On Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011, about 10:30 in the morning, an officer from the Police Department’s Northeast Regional Command was dispatched to the intersection of Lincoln and Partello in regards to illegal dumping. Upon arrival the officer met a witness who said two men had just dumped approximately 30 large commercial truck tires in the vacant lot.
This activity has been ongoing for several years. There is a fee to dispose of used tires properly, but the suspects involved simply dump tires wherever they can to avoid paying the fees. This not only creates an ugly eyesore for the neighborhoods where the dumping takes place, it also costs taxpayers a substantial amount of money to clean up afterwards. The suspects in this case were two Hispanic men driving a late model pickup, possibly Chevrolet, with a blue top, gray side panels, and towing a black trailer. There was also a 90’s model white car, possibly a Pontiac.
