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.
