A 63-year-old Key Largo man was arrested Thursday on charges of illegally dumping a small vessel on Coral Way near the 105 mile marker of the highway.
Sgt. Jason Madnick was called to the location on March 10 about an abandoned boat blocking a driveway.
A witness told Madnick he saw the same boat in the back of a truck the day before and that the owner lived on Ryan Avenue.
Officials found the truck to belong to Reinaldo Carballero, who told Madnick he'd picked the boat up to take it home, but when he realized it wasn't worth keeping he returned it to the place he found it.
Carballero is charged with illegal dumping.
