Littering Arrest an Example
Thursday, December 17, 2009

PUBLIC INFORMATION ANNOUNCEMENT
Littering Arrest Serves as an Example

22-year-old Jacksonville resident Yosvany Rodriquez was arrested this week for littering after detectives determined he was responsible for a large quantity of debris dumped in Clay County along the roadside. (see attached reports for details).

We would like this arrest to serve as an example to others who may consider committing illegal dumping/littering in Clay County. This defendant is now responsible for a $500 bond. Ironically, the cost to legally dump the 1,540 pounds of debris he illegally dumped would have been only $36. In addition, only Clay County residents are permitted to dump their trash/debris at Clay County facilities...so a Jacksonville resident like Rodriguez is not eligible any way.

Additional information about the operating hours and fees for the county's landfills and convenience centers is found easily on the county's public website and information on how to report illegal dumping can be found on the CCSO's public website.

Please let us know if you have any questions about this issue in general or about this most recent arrest. The members of the Environmental Crimes Unit, Detective Gary Winterstein and Detective Robert Dews, can be reached by calling 904-278-3697.

Thank you,
Mary Justino
CCSO PIO
