|Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents cited a Harvey resident for alleged gross littering violations on Feb. 17 in St. Charles Parish.
Agents cited Anthony Hills, 35, for gross littering following an extensive investigation.
LDWF agents received information on Feb. 2 regarding an illegally discarded load of storm debris off CC Road near the Bonnet Carré Spillway. After further investigation, agents determined the load originated from the St. John Parish Public Works dumpster yard. Public works personnel assisted agents with obtaining logbook information and surveillance footage.
Agents then identified the contracted disposal company responsible for the removal and disposition of the public waste in the yard and observed Hills as the operator of the waste truck in the footage. Agents then made contact with Hills and he admitted to dumping the entire roll-off bin from the disposal truck upon CC road.
Gross littering brings up to a $900 fine and 16 hours of community service in a litter abatement program.
Sgt. Kyle Wagner and Cpl. Jeffrey Farmer are the investigating agents for this case. The case will be forwarded to the office of District Attorney Joel Chaisson for prosecution.
