Truck Company Owner Arrested For Illegal Dumping

Cherokee County Constable Eddie Lee arrested 65-year-old Maxine Smith for allowing her employees to illegally dump near Eagles Bluff Golf Course.   Smith is the owner of a trucking company that took tree debris from a construction sight and dumped it on an open piece of land. The truck driver on the day the site was found was 43-year-old Richard Taylor. Both Taylor and Smith have been charged with illegal hauling and illegal dumping. Both have now bonded out of jail.
