Whitehall police are assisting an investigation by the state Department of Environmental Conservation of an illegal dumping incident that apparently occurred during the night of Saturday, Dec. 29 or early morning of Sunday, Dec. 30, on Whitehall’s East Bay Road.
Village Department of Public Works foreman happened to be driving by the crime scene at 10 a.m. Sunday morning.
“I come down and see three vehicles and Whitehall PD – I thought it was a motor vehicle accident,” said village Department of Public Works foreman Steve Brock. “I see garbage, vehicle debris, tires left and right…just garbage spread through the road.”
The garbage, which Brock estimated at being “two good-sized truck loads,” included futon mattresses, couch and bed frames, vehicle tires and struts as well as other detritus.
“It was just friggin’ nasty,” Brock said. “What’s wrong with people?”
