Cumberland Man Charged with Littering
NRP last week charged Michael Lee Kitzmiller, 29, of Cumberland for dumping 25 bags of trash on private property along Lancaster Hill Road near Lonaconing. NRP traced the trash to a female subject in Cumberland who told officers that she paid Kitzmiller to take her trash to the landfill. If found guilty of disposal of litter on private property, a person may receive a maximum penalty of 30 days imprisonment, a $1,500 fine or both.
