ELLINGTON – Detective work led to the arrest of a Randolph man accused of illegal dumping, state police said.

Corry Green, 25, was paid $50 to take garbage to a landfill but instead dumped it on the side of Dean School Road, police said. The discarded items included three mattresses, two recliners, a folding chair, glass – and a garbage bag, containing a receipt with a name, police said. It was the receipt that caught up to Green, said police, who got wind of the crime on Feb. 26.

Green, who was issued an appearance ticket for illegal dumping, faces an appearance in Town of Ellington Court. State Department of Environmental Conservation officers assisted in the investigation.
