LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An Angelina County judge has sentenced a Nacogdoches man to six months in county jail for his role in the illegal dumping of 27 tires on an Angelina County road.
Anthony Dejuan Deckard, 21, pleaded guilty in March to illegal dumping of 1,000 pounds or more, a state jail felony. District Judge Paul White issued the sentence on Monday morning.
According to a previous report, a local tire shop paid Deckard and three others to dispose of the tires last July. A resident at Water Well Road caught them in the act and reported it to the sheriff's office. Deputies caught them after seeing them in a truck with an empty trailer bed.
