KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City, Missouri, Neighborhoods and Housing Services is asking for help to identify suspects who have illegally dumped trash four times at the same location.

The two suspects were caught on camera dumping the trash near East 45th Street and Garfield Avenue, which is known to be a popular spot for illegal dumping.

The suspect drives a maroon, or similarly colored, Chevrolet Silverado with what appears to be white paint spilled on the tailgate.

The truck has fake temporary tags, which are set to expire on Oct. 7.

Illegal dumping costs KCMO taxpayers roughly $2 million annually.

For jurisdictions that utilize the Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers Tips Hotline, anonymous tips can be made by calling 816-474-TIPS (8477), submitting the tip online or through the free mobile app at P3Tips.com.

Annual homicide details and data for the Kansas City area are available through the 41 Action News Homicide Tracker, which was launched in 2015.
