BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Two southwestern Illinois men are accused of illegal dumping after police say they found more than 1,000 scrap tires inside a former East St. Louis club.

The Belleville News-Democrat (https://bit.ly/1fe1Ohl ) reports St. Clair County prosecutors have charged 32-year-old Patrick Singleton of Granite City and 34-year-old Robert Evans Jr. of O’Fallon with criminal disposal of waste.

Police say officers responding to a tip from witnesses found the two men with a flatbed loaded with tires outside the former Club Casino. A warrant alleges the men dumped more than 50 waste tires at a site that wasn’t approved as a sanitary landfill.

Online court records don’t show whether Singleton or Evans have attorneys. They do not have listed home telephone numbers.
