NE Truck 1 NE Truck 2

UPDATE: Northeast News just received an email stating that the city has located the driver of the truck. If you spot other vehicles illegally dumping in the area, you can contact the city’s Illegal Dumping Investigator Alan Ashurst, (816) 215-1112, or email him at Alan.Ashurst@kcmo.org.

Original story:
A truck was spotted illegally dumping in Historic Northeast and the city’s Neighborhood and Housing Services Department is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the vehicle.

A city-owned security camera captured several photos of the truck near 13th and Jackson that was illegally dumping. The truck was also spotted near Truman Road and Chestnut. The camera failed to focus properly on the license plates, but the truck has a unique paint job of red, white and blue.

The city has advised that if you see the truck, please do not approach it, but email the city’s Illegal Dumping Investigator Alan Ashurst at Alan.Ashurst@kcmo.org and put “Northeast” in the subject line. If possible, take note of the location the truck was spotted and the license plate.
