A man police said has been living in a makeshift "trash" home in Lupton City for years has been arrested and pleaded guilty to the charge.
Marcus Landon Kilgore, 47, was charged with criminal littering on Aug. 2.
He was given a suspended sentence on time served after being in jail a week.
Officers responded to 3912 Dixie Circle to speak with Kilgore "about the ongoing issue of him littering at this property."
Police said he had been told multiple times, including letters sent by the city, phone calls from code enforcement and posted signs, to clean up the property.
Officers said he had continued to reside in make-shift living quarters that he had built from trash and scraps that he finds. The city said it is "not within city code and not approved for habitation."
Police said the situation "has been going on for several years. Mr. Kilgore will clean up the area for a time and then will begin to collect and leave trash strewn throughout the yard.
"Mr. Kilgore has indoor lighting and electrical cords running throughout his 'camp' complete with a cell phone on a pole on the roof of the house with the charging cord plugged into another extension cord, which is not rated for outdoor use.
"Mr. Kilgore has been evicted from the residence in the past, but was allowed to go back to the residence by his mother due to him being homeless.
"The problem has been reported by neighbors and the family to the city numerous times."
He was handcuffed and taken to jail on the charge.
