Officer seeks tips in lake littering case
A state wildlife officer is on the trail of the slob who dumped a large amount of trash at a popular Spokane County fishing lake.
Curt Wood, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife police officer, is asking the public to help him identify a suspect pictured in an image from a surveillance camera.
The image was captured as the man left the Wal-Mart store in Airway Heights on June 17 at 2:22 p.m.
On June 20, the officer discovered the trash left around a fire ring at the Hog Canyon Lake public boat access near the Fishtrap area.
Wood recovered a receipt from the trash, which led to the discovery of the Wal-Mart surveillance photo.
A tip could help Wood get to the bottom of this disrespect for public property.
Tipsters can remain anonymous if desired, Wood said.
