Lennox Jervier guilty of illegal dumping
Lennox Jervier was found guilty of illegal dumping in the Magistrates’ Court last Thursday and was ordered to pay EC$3000 by April 4th, 2022.
In default, he will spend three months in prison.
On 30th July, 2021 an investigation was carried out by the Litter Control and Prevention Department based on a report received that same day.
Upon arrival at the scene in Cassada Gardens, the investigative team observed eight garbage bags along with boxes.
After investigating the matter, it was determined that Lennox Jervier was the perpetrator.
He was called in for questioning by the Litter Control and Prevention Department where he confirmed he had arrangements with a business to dispose of their waste once per week.
A litter removal order was issued to Lennox Jervier and the area was then cleaned on the 22nd August, 2021 in the presence of Sergeant Mc. Bernie.
In the last five months, three people have been hauled before the court for illegal dumping.
In all of the cases, hefty fines were imposed on the perpetrators.
