Bizarre acts of illegal dumping in a Mountain Laurel Road yard were reported to police early this week.

The Mountain Laurel resident said the first incident involved an old Christmas tree and a dead squirrel tossed into the yard about 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

A neighbor reported seeing a black pickup truck pull up in front of the home and a male, with light-colored hair, about 16 to 18 years old, throw the debris on the lawn and then drive away.

On Monday morning, the resident told police that garbage was thrown on the front lawn sometime overnight.

Police said similar problems have been reported previously at the property, with trees dumped off, slashed tires and teenagers trespassing in the yard.
