Code Enforcement Officer Debra Byrd tells WTVA-TV that one bag of trash left behind contained some children's school grades and some bank account information and other personal items.
Byrd declined to identify the individual but she says the person will be contacted to come clean up.
There's everything from a mop, some shoes, some spoiled food and even some empty prescription bottles in the trash that has been behind what was the Old Trace Inn in Tupelo.
Byrd says photos have been taken of the garbage for evidence.
Police said if a person is found guilty of illegal dumping he or she could face a fine and or go to jail.
