A driver was caught illegally dumping a white refrigerator on the easement of the 900 block of West Newcombe on surveillance cameras.

Pharr Police describe the vehicle as a white Ford Ranger with unknown license plates. Distinguishing features on the truck are a black front bumper with fog lights, black front push guard, black rims and a black headache rack. 

According to a news release sent from the City of Pharr, illegal dumping creates a nuisance for residents, and furthermore threatens their safety by clogging up drains, attracting animals and pests and creating a hazardous environment.

"Not only is illegal dumping illegal, it’s a quality of life issue," Andy Harvey, Pharr City Manager Chief, said. "Violators show a complete disregard for their fellow residents. We need for citizens to call when they observe this behavior to hold them accountable."
