Trash dumped in Grassland
Large items were illegally dumped during the month of December at the Pawnee National Grassland, U.S. Forest Service officials reported Thursday.
A large hot tub was left on the west side of the Pawnee and then, around Christmas, a couch was dumped in the same location.
Officials ask for the public to help curb this illegal activity. If you see suspicious activity happening on the Pawnee National Grassland or have information regarding these recent crimes, please contact Law Enforcement Officer Terry Baxter at (970) 295-6719.
Dumping trash from private property on federal land could result in a $500 fine and could include a court appearance and additional expenses to cover the cost of removing the trash.
