LEWISTON, N.Y. — Lewiston Police turned to social media Tuesday, asking for the public's help to track down a dump truck that lost part of its load.

Officers were called to Black Nose Spring Road where more than 30 plastic bottles were found along the roadside. Witnesses told police they saw the items fall off of a yellow dump truck that was driving in the area just before 11 a.m. 

Police were asking for anyone with information about the vehicle or the substance in the bottles to call the department.
