KANSAS CITY, Missouri – We’re back with a special edition of the Northeast Newscast.
This week, Northeast News Managing Editor goes out into the field for a ride-along with KCMO Illegal Dumping Investigator Alan Ashurst. Ashurst has a fascinating job, serving as one of two illegal dumping investigators currently working in the Neighborhoods and Housing Services Department. The work involves planting camouflaged motion sensor cameras throughout the City in an effort to find and prosecute illegal dumpers. During the ride-along, we found that Ashurst is a unique and lively character who takes his very difficult job seriously.
