A man who dumped tons of tires on private property will have to pay for his illegal dumping to the tune of $1,668.
The tire dumper, Leonard Bogle, 51, entered a guilty plea Tuesday morning before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to the charge of aggravated criminal littering. He was placed on probation for six months and must make restitution to the victims in the amount of $1,668.
His sentence comes after investigators were called to property off Wilson Road. Officers found someone had dumped several hundred used tires on private property. It was during the visit an investigator saw the suspect leaving the scene of the tire dumping.
“I saw Mr. Bogle departing the property in his truck,” said sheriff’s investigator Kevin Murphy. “Upon stopping him, he admitted he had just disposed of several tires on the property and was responsible for the past dumping of tires.”
Bogle cooperated with the officer and took him to where he had been dumping the tries. About 500 used tires were found on the property. The tires will cost $1 apiece for the county to remove them, explaining the restitution Bogle has to pay for his illegal dumping.
