MOSS POINT, Miss. (AP) - A warning for those illegally dumping trash in Moss Point: police have begun installing hidden cameras to catch and punish violators. Moss Point citizens and city leaders hope the extra eyes watching out will help keep the city clean.
Moss Point resident Jeramey Anderson tells WLOX TV (http://bit.ly/GNsP85 ) it frustrates him to see trash dumped all over the city because it paints an ugly image of his hometown.
Anderson believes people tend to throw their trash anywhere in Moss Point because they think they won't get caught.
Chief Keith Davis says the high-tech cameras will be hidden in the city and roll 24 hours a day.
Davis says if the cameras catch folks dumping or littering, they could pay up to $1,000 and possibly face jail time if convicted.
