EARLIER | KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City, Missouri officials are asking for help in finding at least two people suspected of illegal dumping. 

John Baccala, a spokesman for KCMO Neighborhoods and Housing Services, said that the individuals have illegally dumped items on three separate occasions. 

In photos taken near the 3400 block of Drury Avenue, at least two people are seen dumping their items in a grassy area off the street. 

A gray pickup truck and a black car are also visible in the photos. The vehicles have no front license plates, Baccala said. 

Earlier this year, a former USPS worker was seen illegally dumping mail in a neighborhood near 71 Highway and Emanuel Cleaver II Boulevard. The area is one of the city’s top locations for dumping trash, Illegal Dumping Specialist Alan Ashurst told 41 Action News at the time. 

Anyone with information in the illegal dumping is asked to contact the city's illegal dumping hotline at 816-513-DUMP (3867).
