ROCKDALE, Texas (AP) - One hidden digital camera is credited
with helping Milam County authorities nab five alleged
illegal trash dumpers.
The camera was set up in a wooded area along County Road 254,
near Rockdale, at a cost of about $200.
Several thousand digital photos later helped identify five
suspects accused of illegal dumping.
The Milam County district attorney's office is using the photos
in its prosecution.
County worker Shorty Blake told KXXV-TV that he's not a "tree
hugger," but he's disgusted by all the dumped garbage.
County officials expect to spend at least $10,000 to clean up
the site from trash ranging from plastic bottles to shingles to
Rockdale is about 60 miles northeast of Austin.
