Two dump truck loads of pavement were dumped on private property in Marysville, which has touched off an RCMP investigation.
The property owner, Kerry Murray of Unique Windows and Solariums in Kimberley, contacted police after finding the pavement dumped over an embankment.
As of Wednesday afternoon, the culprits contacted Murray and confessed to making an ‘honest’ mistake in dumping the pavement on the property.
They have admitted fault and are taking steps to clean up what was dumped, added Murray.
“Someone Saturday night came in and dumped two dump truck-loads of asphalt over the bank right by Kyle Creek.”
Police were looking for a black dump truck with white lettering that entered the property on Saturday, April 25, between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.
After writing about the dumping on Unique Windows and Solariums Facebook page, the post went viral within the community and the culprits eventually came forward.
“Thank you everyone who helped by sharing this post and getting the word out, we appreciate your concern in this matter,” wrote Murray in an update.
