The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department is looking for the person who dumped more than 90 used tires on a road in New Gloucester.

The vehicle tires were dumped on Quarry Road sometime overnight Thursday and reported to police around 6:30 a.m. Friday. The tires took up a large portion of the travel lane and extended into vernal pools and the wood line along the road, police said.

“This type of improper disposal of used tires creates a risk to the public, wildlife and the environment overall,” Capt. Scott Stewart said in a statement.

Anyone with information about the illegal dumping is asked to contact the sheriff’s department.
