WASHINGTON, DC. — An Alexandria man has been charged for dumping over 1,000 tires in DC, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

Police obtained an arrest warrant and took Deron Winston McDonald, 56, of Alexandria into custody Wednesday. He was charged with an illegal dumping offense.

The man is accused of dumping all the tires in the 4000 block of E Street SE back in November. Police believe auto shops paid McDonald to throw out their used tires. He reportedly took a stolen vehicle and dumped the tires in a stream and bank of the stream, The Washington Post reported.

It took a number of volunteers, police cadets and furloughed federal employees to clean up the tires in Fort Dupont Park, according to The Post.

MPD would like to announce an arrest has been made of 56 year old Deron McDonald, for his role in an Illegal Dumping offense that occurred in the 4000 blk of E Street, SE. Thank you to everyone who helped make DC a safer place with this arrest! #DCPolice #HereToHelp
