MAGALIA, Calif.-  People on the ridge say they're fed up with people dumping and even looting on their burned properties. 

Action News Now spoke with one man, George Gold, who lost his home in Magalia.

He says his property has been targeted by looters 6 times since the Camp Fire, but that's not the only problem he's been dealing with.

Thursday, he spent 5 hours picking up trash that was also dumped on his property.

He says, "The problem is that we survivors, you can look at all the stuff you want, but for me, it's one insult, one setback, one depressing event after another, it's just depressing."

Deputy Steve Bertagna with the Butte County Sheriff's Office, says now that they are aware of this issue on Ishy Drive, they plan on keeping an eye on it.

They also found a name in the trash and are attempting to locate that individual to see what role, if any, they played in the crime.
