Charged with interference with a disposal facility are Dexroy Johnson and Leon Gordon.

Reports are that on September 25, the men were found with a quantity of eggs that had been taken from the Riverton City dump.

They pleaded not guilty.

Gordon explained, "I run taxi and a man asked me to pick up some eggs down there. My car broke down while carrying the eggs, so I called my friend to help me."

The friend Gordon mentioned was his co-accused, Johnson.
