POLLOK, TX (KTRE) -

An Angelina County family is upset after they were warned by the Angelina Co. Sheriff’s Office about the look of their property.

Pat McKamie said that she has been given two months to clean up the property after the former tenant of her property allegedly left the property littered with thousands of newspapers.

“They brought loads of these papers over here,” McKamie said. “They have brought them over here in totes and thrown them in there, and now I am being fined for the cleanup. I told them about all of the newspapers and they told me they would work with me."

McKamie said that the tenant was a carrier for the Lufkin Daily News and, to her knowledge, had been one for several years.

McKamie said she knew about several stacks of papers around the house, but was unaware that the tenant was dumping papers on her property across FM 1819.

"I was thoroughly pissed because of all the dumping,” McKamie said. “They had no right to come over here. They did not have permission to dump over here."

McKamie argued that the papers were supposed to be delivered to clients and that the tenant is profiting from papers they did not deliver. Lufkin Daily News Circulation Director Jenniffer Ricks said that the paper looked into the complaint, and they determined the papers were extra ones that were left over.

"All the papers that I have seen in the pictures are additional papers, and as independents, we don't tell them how to dispose of them,” Ricks said. “Subscribers would have called, and so we know all of our subscriber base has received their papers."

Ricks added that this issue does not involve the paper and is between the landowners and the tenant.

The tenant in question did not wish to give a comment for this story.
