ROCKY RIVER, Ohio (AP) — Police say a crew coating a swimming pool near Cleveland got caught ‘blue-handed’ dumping waste over a cliff into a river.
Authorities in Rocky River say a paddle boarder alerted them to the dumping last week after seeing bright blue streaks running down the rocky cliff.
Police say the pool waste was being dumped over the cliff and into the Rocky River where it meets Lake Erie.
Officers arrested a member of the crew that was working on the swimming pool.
More charges could be filed after investigations by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Coast Guard.
