Alleged garbage dumper forgets the oldest rule in crime, don’t leave your address at the scene

A Lorain man was charged with dumping a pile of household garbage last week in the lawn of West River Road N. property.

David Huhn, 43, of McKinley Street, Lorain, was charged with littering and deposit of garbage Wednesday. He was arrested on Clinton Avenue in Lorain.

Police followed an address that the Childers’ discovered in the trash to a house in Lorain with a dump truck parked in the driveway. After talking to multiple people, police determined that Huhn used it on July 24 to dump trash on the Childers’ property. The trash included loose hypodermic needles.

Because the trash presented a health hazard, the Elyria Sanitation Department cleaned it up and absorbed the $318.40 charge.

Huhn is set to appear in Elyria Municipal Court at 10 a.m. Aug. 8.
