DEPUTIES REMOVE ONE TON OF YARD DEBRIS FROM RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD
Tuesday, May 8, 2012

 
LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - Lexington County Sheriff’s Department code enforcement officers and resident deputies in partnership with Keep the Midlands Beautiful and the Lexington County Solid Waste Management Division on Saturday, May 5 removed more than one ton of yard debris from outside homes on Ambling Circle and other streets in the Whitehall II subdivision near Irmo.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said Irmo Resident Deputy Dan Rusinyak coordinated the clean-up effort with assistance from residents in the Whitehall II subdivision. This was the first major clean-up effort that was conducted in the neighborhood.

Deputies and citizens focused on removing yard debris from homes that were occupied by senior citizens and persons with physical disabilities who had limited ability to trim overgrown trees and shrubs outside their homes, Metts said. Overgrown trees and shrubs make it difficult for law enforcement officers to detect whether criminal activity is occurring at homes. The clean-up effort reflected the Sheriff’s Department mission of providing professional law enforcement services that enhance the quality of life for all people in Lexington County.

If you, or someone you know, have any information regarding any crime, you are encouraged to contact Crimestoppers. You could earn a reward up to $1,000.
