Officials find illegal dumping suspects in McLean Co.

MCLEAN CO., Ky. (WFIE) - The McLean County Sheriff’s Office says that deputies caught the people accused of illegally dumping, and made them clean up the mess.

The constable and a couple of deputies began investigating the dumping over the weekend, and were able to locate the suspects.

Officials say their punishment was to clean up the mess, as well as pay some extra.

The sheriff says this is a warning to anyone who wants to dump trash. He also says it’s a lot cheaper to pay the fees at the dump than to pay fines and risk charges.
