Two Port Charlotte men were charged with illegal dumping on Wednesday, the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office reported. A CCSO sergeant and prior environmental detective spotted a pickup in the area of Florida Street and Carl Avenue in Punta Gorda around 2:50 p.m. Several old broken television sets were on the ground behind the truck, and two men, identified as Ricky Kevin Munzel, 63, and Larry Neil Perkins, 55, both of Punta Gorda, were getting into the truck.
A bathtub and vacuum cleaner were in the back of the truck. The sergeant assumed he interrupted them in the middle of dumping and told them to stop, but they continued getting into the truck. Once he announced, “Sheriff’s Office,” they both stopped.
