German Police regularly investigate tyre dumping

In another sign of organised tyre dumping, a farmer between Ailersbach and Rohensaas found that one of his disused silos had been appropriated by criminals who had filled it with waste tyres. The Police in Höchstadt are investigating the incident.

Tyre dumping is now a frequent occurence across Germany and many incidents result in police press notices announcing the incident and asking for assistance.

In another recent incident, two tyres were just dumped on the highway. The Police removed the tyres and issued a call for information as to how they got there. The German Police take these issues seriously and always investigate.
