An elderly Alabama woman last Sunday was arrested for an unpaid trash bill totaling $77.80.
The 82-year-old woman was cuffed and charged with misdemeanor offense of ‘failure to pay solid waste fees.’
Martha Louis Menefield, of Valley was released on bond, according to a statement from Valley Police Chief Mike Reynolds.
“When contact could not be made, a door hanger was left at her residence,” Mike Reynolds said. “The hanger contained information on the reason for the visit and a name and contact phone number for her to call. The citation advised Ms. Menefield that she was to appear in court on September 7, 2022, in reference to this case.”
Police said Menefield was cited in August for failing to pay the trash bill three months in a row.
