Authorities in southern Minnesota's Brown County are trying to find out who dumped a semi truck load of garbage on the side of a rural road.
The Brown County Sheriff's Office said the illegal dumping was discovered early Thursday along County Road 30 just west of State Highway 4, about 7 miles north of Sleepy Eye.
County highway crews had to be called to the scene remove a semi load of trash from along the gravel shoulder.
"Some of the materials dumped were tires, siding, doors, lighting fixtures, concrete slabs, tarps, metal, a small wagon and pallets," the sheriff's office reported in a news release. "Some of the items may have come from a hog barn that was torn down."
The sheriff's office said it appeared the garbage was dumped by a semi pulling a side-dump trailer.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Brown County Sheriff's Office at (507) 233-6700.
