Two men accused of throwing needles from vehicle near park where kids play

Mingo County deputies said two men have been arrested after they threw needles from a vehicle within 100 feet of a park where kids play.

Bill Spaulding, 42, and Jeff Spaulding, 34, were arrested Wednesday in Kermit and charged with prohibited act and conspiracy, according to a post on the Mingo County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.

The sheriff’s office had put a previous message on Facebook asking parents to alert their children to the dangers of syringes after parents found a few over the weekend at Kermit Park.

The Spauldings currently are being held in the Southwestern Regional Jail on $10,000 bond each.
