ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - Police say they’ve been responding to repeated calls of illegal dumping at The Salvation Army Thrift Store in southeast Roswell.

Authorities say the thrift store accepts donations only during its business hours of Tuesday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and donations should not be left outside the store at any time.

The thrift store doesn’t accept non-working items or clothing that is in a condition that it likely cannot be used.

Police say much of the illegal dumping at the store involves items that should be considered trash.

They say items are being dumped outside the store in an area that has been marked with a “No Dumping” sign.

Police say they’ll investigate any information about people or vehicles seen illegally dumping items outside the store.
