LINTON, Ind. (WTHI) - Officials in Linton hope someone will come forward with information about who emptied trash cans and littered the City Park overnight.
Someone also placed the trash bins up on the basketball goals. Mayor John Wilkes says the incident was caught on camera, but officials haven't been able to identify the individual(s).
