Mountain of tires mysteriously appears

NORWICH, CT Blight Control Officer Edward Martin says the mountain of tires in Norwich was first noticed by restaurant workers on Tuesday morning. The shift that left the night before didn't remember seeing them.

Some were used, marked "no good" with X's marking holes, while others appeared to be new, with the labels still attached. There were multiple brands.

Police went to local tire dealers, but they all said they pay a contractor to haul away their old tires.

Police are hoping video surveillance from nearby businesses yields some clues.

Mayor Peter Nystrom says he's disgusted and vowed to prosecute the dumper.
