Lexington police are seeking the public's help in identifying a man who illegally dumped a trailer full of construction debris.

Lexington police said Wednesday that have identified a man they claim dumped a load of construction debris on someone else’s property.

Jason S. Bennett, 38, of Cynthiana, is charged with criminal littering, police said.

Police say he dumped a trailer load of wood paneling, planks and decorative columns at the radio transmitter site owned by iHeartMedia on Russell Cave Road near Huffman Mill Pike on Aug. 1.

In surveillance video released by the police department, Bennett can be seen driving up in a heavy duty pickup truck, opening the tailgate of a trailer loaded with wood, and then raising the trailer up before pulling away.

Police released video of Bennett Tuesday in hopes of generating new leads in what they called a case of “criminal littering.” Anyone with information is asked to call police at 859-258-3600.

Anonymous tips, including photos and videos, can be submitted by texting LEXPD plus the tip to CRIMES (274637). Information can also be sent anonymously through Bluegrass Crime Stoppers at (859) 253-2020 or Bluegrasscrimestoppers.com.
