At one time, this trash was along the side of the road in trash bags. Scavengers got a whole of it, and spread it all over.

Scavengers tear up trash bags, spread paper on street

On West Jane Street, located just north of Abbeville, there was a 25 yard stretch of trash that should not be there, according to Police Jury Wayne Touchet.
Touchet discovered the mess Tuesday afternoon. He got down and went through the trash and saw addresses and names of who the trash belonged to.
However, he was not 100 percent sure that the person to whom the stuff belonged is the same person who put the trash there. He was not sure if the person the stuff belongs to, also owns the house across the street where the trash was found.
