Key West man charged with illegal dumping

A Key West man is in jail, charged with illegally dumping a felony amount of trash on Sugarloaf Key.

In December, Deputies James Hager, Todd Jones and Ken Fricke investigated the dumping of a large pile of debris on Old Pappy Road, Lower Sugarloaf Key. The pile had been dumped on the right of way at the end of the road. In the pile of trash, they found shipping lables on several card board boxes along with a bill of lading in one of the bags that had been dumped. This evidence led back to an Estate Liquidating business located on Duval Street in Key West.

The owner of the business said he paid 26 year old David Pulido $100 to properly dispose of the trash at the landfill. When Deputy Fricke met with Pulido, he admitted to illegally dumping the trash even though he saw a no dumping sign at that location and knew he was doing something wrong.

The deputies properly disposed of the trash and a warrant was issued for the arrest of Pulido. He was booked into jail last week on felony illegal dumping charges.
