Apr 28, 2018

NEW GLOUCESTER, Maine - The Cumberland County sheriff's office is trying to determine who dumped more than 90 old tires on a road in New Gloucester.

The department says in addition to creating a traffic hazard, the tires also landed on some vernal pools, which provide necessary habitat for salamander and frog species in Maine.

Captain Scott Stewart says the tires were likely discarded sometime Thursday night on Quarry Road in New Gloucester.
