|Lancaster County Sheriff Patrick McCranie this week issued the following reminder regarding littering:
“Citizens need to be aware that the anti-littering initiative is still a work in progress. A citizen recently observed trash being thrown out of a vehicle’s window and notified the Sheriff’s office. We located the person who committed the littering and they were issued a warning due to the complainant not wanting to pursue further charges. Please know if you are caught littering and charges are placed, a fine will go along with the charge.
