During 2016, Hoskins went to nearby automotive businesses and offered to dispose of its scrap tires in exchange for payment. He then drove to an abandoned residence on Lockwood Avenue in Hamilton, where he dumped between 30 and 40 tires at a time. Investigators found almost six tons of scrap tires on the property.
“This house was completely trashed with tires stacked to the ceiling, stuffed in the shed and scattered across the yard,” Yost said in a release. “On top of creating an eyesore and a public health concern, this guy forced taxpayers to pay the costs to clean up his mess.”
