Recently, the Barren County Sheriff’s Office has worked numerous incidents in which trash cans have been struck in the middle of the road by vehicles.

The cans had been pulled to the end of properties for pick up and unknown subjects have been moving the cans into the roadway and in some cases moving the cans several miles away from the owners property and then leaving them in the middle of roadway, according to a BCSO news release.

BCSO has received scheduled pick-up locations by day of the week and will be conducting extra patrols in those areas.

If anyone has any information as to who may be removing the cans or sees anyone tampering with the trash cans on the side of the road, they ask that you please notify dispatch immediately at 270-651-5151 so a deputy can be sent to the area to investigate.
