A husband and wife are accused of dumping a large couch on a dead-end road in the Hudson Valley.

In late June, a Department of Environmental Conservation officer was alerted to a Facebook post of a video of a man in a U-Haul truck dumping a large red couch on a dead-end road in the town of Thompson.

The officer contacted the person who posted the video and was provided with a license plate from the truck. The ECO investigated the case with the assistance of a deputy from the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office.

The deputy tracked the rental to a service center in Rock Hill, where the officers were given the name of a woman who rented the truck.

Surveillance video from the store showed the woman with the man from the Facebook video walking in to rent the truck, officials say.

The deputy interviewed the woman and showed her the surveillance video. The woman gave the officer a written statement saying it was her husband in the surveillance video, according to the DEC.

Following the investigation, the officers issued the husband tickets for unlawful disposal of solid waste, depositing a noisome or unwholesome substance on or near a roadway and violating the town's littering ordinance.
