TOWN OF BELOIT - Town of Beloit authorities are investigating another major illegal dumping incident that occurred Monday, according to Town Police Chief Ron Northrop.
Northrop said 25 tires were dumped on Paddock and Pann roads in the township, with another 60 tires being picked up last week, Northrop said.
Northrop said the tires could have possibly come from a business.
"It's a possibility but we don't know right now," Northrop said.
Northrop noted there were increased patrols in the rural areas of the township that coincide with the Town of Beloit Board of Supervisors approving increased fines for illegal dumping.
Fines can be issued between $263 and $1,397 if subjects are found dumping trash along a roadway.
According to a Facebook post by the Greater Beloit Area Crime Stoppers, authorities "think someone must have seen at least one of these instances of dumping."
"We are hoping for information on this," Northrop said.
The Rock County Sheriff's Office said dumping in the county is a routine issue for the rural areas.
If anyone has information regarding the dumping, contact the Greater Beloit Area Crime Stoppers at 608-362-7463 or submit a tip to p3tips.com/482.
