Sheriff Searching for Illegal Dumping Duo at Ohio Wildlife Preserve

2018-08-30 18:51
Authorities in Ohio are looking for two people captured on surveillance video illegally dumping trash at a wildlife preserve area. Video posted by the Hocking County Sheriff's Office shows a pair of unidentified individuals heaving televisions, tires, and various other items from the back of a pickup truck and into the greenery. Both the Hocking County Sheriff's Office and the Ohio Division of Wildlife have reached out to the public with a request to help identify the man and woman seen in the footage. The woman, wearing a purple top and jean cut-offs, can be seen in the video flinging hubcaps into the bushes. Meanwhile, a bearded man wearing a sleeveless shirt and what appears to be a baseball cap can be seen pushing heavy items from the back of the truck and onto the grass below. The sheriff's office says the incident took place in July off Sand Run Road, in the vicinity of the Sunday Creek State Wildlife Area. "If you have information on the identity of the two individuals, please contact the Hocking County Sheriff's Office at 740-385-2131 or by sending us a message," said the sheriff's office on Facebook.
