LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Caught in the act! Police say a now-former employee of a roofing company was dumping illegally.

The pictures taken Wednesday on Manslick Road in the Fairdale area - of the "dirty deed." Someone saw the truck and called police.

Officers found it was stuck in the mud - and shingles and other materials appeared to be dumped on the lot.

An employee of the company showed up with a tow truck, but police impounded the truck instead and cited its driver.

The vehicle will not be released until all fines and cleanup costs are paid.

The company owner tells WDRB he did not authorize his employee to travel to that area and has since fired him.
