BECKLEY - A Raleigh County man was booked in jail Thursday for operating an open dump.
Charles Keller, 74, was convicted in October and fined $300. Circuit Court Judge H.L. Kirkpatrick also gave Keller 60 days to clean up his property or face jail time. Kirkpatrick determined last week that Keller's cleanup effort wasn't sufficient and cited that only 10% of the trash was removed.
Kirkpatrick said that Keller will be released if he makes significant progress cleaning up his property through his family members.
Keller is in Southern Regional Jail.
