A watchful neighbor caught a truck hauler dumping dirt right next door to his Detroit home. Fed up, he got on the phone.  

Neighbors are hoping what happened next will be a warning for others.

Steve Dixon and his elderly dad are sick and tired of the dumpers. The vacant lot next door has been turned into a dirt debris field. 

Recently, Dixon spotted a red dump truck on his street and took notice. Moments later, the bed came up and dirt came out. 

Dixon called his neighbor, camera crusader, Jonathan Pommerville.  

"We are all connected in here and we have eyeballs watching you." said Pommerville.
