Man charged with gross littering after storm debris was found near Bonnet Carre Spillway

The matter will be forwarded to the office of St. Charles Parish District Attorney Joel Chaisson for prosecution.

A Harvey man was recently cited by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries for allegedly dumping an entire roll-off bin of storm debris onto CC Road in St. Charles Parish.

Agents cited Anthony Hills, 35, for gross littering on Feb. 17 following an extensive investigation. According to LDWF officials, agents received information on Feb. 2 regarding an illegally discarded load of storm debris off CC Road near the Bonnet Carré Spillway.

“After further investigation, agents determined the load originated from the St. John Parish Public Works dumpster yard,” Adam Einck of LDWF said. “Public works personnel assisted agents with obtaining logbook information and surveillance footage. Agents then identified the contracted disposal company responsible for the removal and disposition of the public waste in the yard and observed Hills as the operator of the waste truck in the footage.”

Einck said after agents made contact with Hills, he admitted to dumping the bin from his disposal truck.

Gross littering brings up to a $900 fine and 16 hours of community service in a litter abatement program.

Sgt. Kyle Wagner and Cpl. Jeffrey Farmer are the LDWF investigating agents for the case, and the matter will be forwarded to the office of St. Charles Parish District Attorney Joel Chaisson for prosecution.
