A St. Louis resident illegally placed trash in a dumpster at the Shepley Apartments on the north side of St. Louis. The suspect did not live at the Shepley Apartments and therefore did not have permission to use the dumpster there. This is a crime and can cost you up to $800. “The complainant requested the incident was documented and the suspect was warned,” Chief Ramereiz said. “If this should happen again, the complainant will pursue criminal charges.”
