Dumping Charges and Traffic offenses
On 4/05/2010 Sergeant Francis Rich took a report from a business on the 200 block of E. Baltimore Ave that an unknown person had been illegally dumping trash into the business trash container. A neighbor took pictures of the actor who was seen operating a pickup truck with wood siding. The business and property owner reported they would prosecute if the defendant was located and identified, as this same person had been doing the same thing over a course of weeks.

Later the same day, Officer John Clancy located a truck in the borough being operated by a resident of Prospect Ave. His investigation determined the operator was the person responsible for the dumping and learned he was also operating under a suspended Driver’s License. Appropriate citations were issued and the truck towed to impound until a licensed driver was available to pick it up.
