Someone dumped a semi-load of trash by the side of the road near Sleepy Eye

Police are on the lookout for the culprit.

Police in Brown County are looking for the person responsible for dumping the above pile of trash by the side of a county road.

Deputies found tires, siding, doors, lighting fixture, concrete slabs, tarp, a small wagon, pallets and metal on County Road 30, just west of the Hwy. 4 intersection on Thursday morning.

The Brown County Highway Department had to be called to remove the debris, which was located 7 miles north of Sleepy Eye.

Deputies estimate that there is about a semi-load of materials, which is believed to have been left illegally by a semi pulling a side dump trailer.

They believe some of the materials may have come from a hog barn that had been torn down.

Anyone with information should call the Brown County Sheriff's Office at 507-233-6700.
