Authorities in Ohio are looking for two people captured on surveillance video illegally dumping trash at a wildlife preserve area.

Video posted by the Hocking County Sheriff’s Office shows a pair of unidentified individuals heaving televisions, tires, and various other items from the back of a pickup truck and into the greenery.

Both the Hocking County Sheriff’s Office and the Ohio Division of Wildlife have reached out to the public with a request to help identify the man and woman seen in the footage.

The woman, wearing a purple top and jean cut-offs, can be seen in the video flinging hubcaps into the bushes.
