Indiana authorities say they have busted an illegal dumper after finding a receipt in a pile of garbage that was left along railroad tracks.

The incident happened in Lake County, according to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement Division.

“Did you misplace your large pile of garbage in Lake County? Well lucky for you an officer was able to locate a receipt in your discarded building materials,” the agency wrote in a Facebook post alongside an image of one of its vehicles parked near a pile of cinder blocks, trash bags and other debris.
