Illegal Dumping In Cherokee County Caught On Tape

A tip from residents led to three illegal dumping arrests on Wednesday. The dumping site was in Cherokee County off County Road 4302.

A dashboard video caught two of the dumpers unloading more than half a ton of old building materials. Officials say the owner of the property was charging the men $25.00 per trailer of trash.

"It's really cheaper to go to the city dump and dump your trash and pay that small fee then what we are going to put on you," said Earl Dominy, Department of License & Weight in Cherokee County.

The property owner will face state jail felony. The other two men face a Class A misdemeanor for illegal dumping.

And one of the men will also face a Class B misdemeanor for possession of marijuana.
