WELD COUNTY, Colo. — The Weld County Sheriff's Office has identified the person responsible for dumping mobile homes across northeast Weld County since the beginning of the month.

The Sheriff's Office said the man is not facing any charges at this point. They're asking him to remove the homes and if he doesn't, he could face charges. 

The man has removed several homes, but more remain, the Sheriff's Office said. 

The abandoned trailers were first reported Sunday, Feb. 2. Since then, deputies have located seven mobile home trailers abandoned on county roads, in pastures and on private property. 

Most of them were dumped in northeast Weld County near the towns of Briggsdale and Hereford. 

Several mobile homes were abandoned on Weld County Road 77 between Weld roads 110 and 136.

Others were dumped on Colo. 14 and Weld 390, in the Pawnee National Grassland between Keota and Buckingham. 

Another was dumped north of the Colorado-Wyoming border.
