A rotten smell is coming out of Point Clark - from the ditch.

The South-Bruce OPP received a littering report from a Huron Twp. resident Thursday afternoon. Since June 1, 2014, soiled Depends undergarments and soiled diapers have been found in Point Clark area ditches.

Section 86 of the Environmental Protection Act prohibits littering - "no person shall abandon any material in a place, manner, receptacle or wrapping such that is reasonable likely that the material will become litter". On conviction, a first time violator faces a fine of up to $1,000.

If you can help solve this crime, contact the police at 1-888-310-122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
