Detectives are offering a cash reward in exchange for the public's help to find out who dumped seven 55-gallon drums of hazardous materials in Miller Place one year ago, Suffolk officials said Wednesday.

The barrels were discarded on land owned by the Town of Brookhaven, off Miller Place-Yaphank Road, near Cypress Court, between Dec. 15 and Dec. 16, 2020, the police said in a statement.

The person or people who dumped the barrels could be charged with criminal mischief and violating the environmental conservation law, the statement said.
