Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest Offers Reward
Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Detectives continue to investigate several incidents where suspect(s) continue to illegally dump large amounts of used oil. Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest is now offering a cash reward to anyone providing information leading to an arrest in this incident.
Since July 30, 2016, several 55-gallon barrels and other large containers of used oil have been illegally dumped at various locations throughout Spokane County.
• July 30: 8 barrels located in the area of Chattaroy and Perry
• July 31: 5 barrels located in the area of Perry north of Hawthorne
• August 2: 16 barrels located in the area of Hayford and Euclid
• August 2: 1 barrel in the area of Crestline and Magnesium
• August 3: 14 barrels in the area of Houston and Government Way
Many of these barrels have been found to be leaking, some tipped over and several areas had oil spilled all over the ground. This illegal activity creates a risk to motorists in the area and our environment.
Detectives are asking for the public’s help identifying the suspect(s) who are responsible for these senseless criminal acts committed on our community and environment so they can be held accountable for their actions.
