Louisiana Man Cited for Gross Littering in Orleans Parish After Agents Locate Identifying Information
A man residing in Slidell, Louisiana was recently issued a citation for allegedly violating littering regulations within Orleans Parish. The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) enforcement agents observed a fresh, large litter pile near the intersection of Hwy. 90 (Chef Mentuer) and Hwy. 11, a notorious dumping site in New Orleans East.
Upon investigating the materials, including paint cans, boxes, and construction materials, the agents were able to trace them back to Luis M. Delgado-Reyes. Additional paint cans identical to those found in the litter pile were discovered at Delgado-Reyes’ residence. Following an interview with the subject, the agents concluded that Delgado-Reyes intentionally placed the litter. The charge against Delgado-Reyes is for Gross Littering.
The act of gross littering is subject to a punitive measure of a maximum fine of $900, imprisonment for a period of up to 30 days, and completion of 16 hours of community service in a designated litter abatement program. Senior Agent Salvador Mangano and Agent Mason Castello are actively involved in the investigation and resolution of this case.
All persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
