A warrant was issued for their arrests last week.  Both turned themselves in the next day and they were released within hours.

Investigators say the couple dumped more than a thousand pounds of trash on their own property on Skrabanek Street, near the Snook public schools.

The illegal dumping charge is a felony and could result in jail time and a fine.  Unauthorized disposal of lead acid battery is a Class-A misdemeanor.

Snook officials are hiring a contractor to remove the trash.
