Arrest made in illegal dumpings in Tallapoosa County

TALLAPOOSA COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - Tallapoosa County authorities advise they’ve arrested one person in connection to the illegal dumping of roof shingles last week.

Jorge Guzman faces five counts of criminal littering. The shingles were from homes damaged by hail in April near Alex City.

Detectives say Guzman gave a statement to his alleged involvement.

County leaders noticed several piles of roof shingles in right-of-ways over a span of a few days last week.
