Hidden Cameras Catch Litterbugs

JUNEAU, Alaska, (UPI) — Authorities in the Alaskan capital said they have used hidden cameras to catch litterbugs at popular dumping sites around the city.

Juneau police said since the start of spring, they have issued tickets to five people who were caught on camera abandoning trash at the sites along remote country roads, the Anchorage Daily News reported Tuesday.

“As far as I know we were able to identify everybody who dumped anything in that area,” said George Schaaf, parks and landscape superintendent for the city and borough.

Police said ticketing the litterbugs used to be difficult due to officers being unable to identify the culprits.

“We get tired of digging through piles hoping to find a scrap of paper with somebody’s name on it,” said Bob Dilley, lead community services officer for the Juneau Police Department.
