From age 73 to age 76 Mr. Larry Pope clandestinely tossed coffee cups in the yard of a woman he held a grudge against.
Edward and Cheryl Patton told The Buffalo News they tried mounting a camera in a tree in front of their home in Lake View to catch the phantom litterer. But it wasn't until some neighbors got involved recently and followed a minivan and jotted down its license plate number that there was a break in the case.
After Edward Patton called police, they waited and pulled over a vehicle driven by 76-year-old Larry Pope, who Cheryl Patton said had once worked with her and had had disagreements with her over union issues.
Pope was charged with harassment and ticketed for throwing refuse onto a roadway.
