DETROIT – Two 20-year-old men were arrested for dumping debris in an alley on Detroit's west side, police said.

The pastor of a church in the 17600 block of Joy Road in Detroit called police July 15 to report an illegal dumping incident.

Investigators identified the men as Brandon Novak and Joseph Journeau and obtained arrest warrants, police said. Both men turned themselves in July 22.

Novak and Journeau are charged with littering on private property.
