No clues to the perpetrators

The police confirms the facts. "by the municipality of balsthal was the cantonal police solothurn on thursday, 20. January 2022, reported that in the bereten forest near balsthal ca. 50 old tires were disposed of illegally. A police patrol consequently went to the scene and took the facts of the case." there are currently no clues as to the perpetrators of the crime.
"we sometimes find old kitchens"
In the Balsthal/mumliswil region, illegal waste disposal is a recurring occurrence, as district forester Kilian Bader says in response to a question from 20 minuten. "it doesn’t happen often on this scale," he says. "what we have occasionally are old kitchens, so boxes and plywood."in addition, there are litter bags and other littering. "what is atypical in this case," says Bader, "is that the tires were dumped in broad daylight instead of, for example, during the night on a secluded forest path."
The tires were probably found on 20. January between ten and twelve o’clock at the roggenstrasse disposed of. Persons who can provide relevant information are asked to contact the Balsthal police station (062 311 96 00).
