(LAUREL, MS) - (WDAM) Laurel officials are on the hunt to find out who's dropping used tires near Interstate 59.

Laurel Mayor Melvin Mack said residents who live off Cook Avenue just behind Morning Star Baptist Church, reported people dropping off old tires and other trash on dead-end streets.

Mack said littering is a very serious crime.  He said hopefully the serial numbers inside the tires will help lead authorities to the individual or individuals responsible.
