Two Men Arrested for Illegally Dumping in El Sereno

By City News Service

Two men caught on video dumping trash in El Sereno were facing misdemeanor charges of illegal dumping, Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich said on May 14.

“Thanks to hard work and our use of technology, we were able to charge these suspects with crimes against our quality of life,” Trutanich said.

Eastside City Councilman Jose Huizar had some cameras set up where illegal dumping was a problem, and that led to the arrests of Pablo Reyes Hernandez, 56, on May 20 and Fredy Noe Gonzales, 43, on June 13 and June 28.

The cameras used in identifying illegal dumping suspects are on loan from the California Air Resources Board.

“This is an example of what happens when residents, city departments and elected officials work together to send a clear message to those who litter our neighborhoods, hillsides and open spaces,” Huizar said.
