INDUSTRIAL WASTE INDICTMENT - KTBS.com - Shreveport, LA News, Weather and Sports


Posted: Updated:

A federal indictment alleges that the owner of Baton Rouge Tank Wash took $371,000 to illegally dump 6.3 million gallons of industrial wastes into city-parish sewers between March 2009 and September 2012. The chemicals allegedly were untreated, undertreated or wastes for which the company did not have a permit.

The Advocate reports that 55-year-old Roger Dies, of Zachary, is charged with witness tampering, obstructing justice, and five Clean Water Act violations, one of them a felony. He's also charged with making two felony false statements to government investigators and creating three sets of false documents.

Dies could not be reached for comment. John McLindon represented Dies at a preliminary hearing Friday. He says he could not comment because he has not been hired by Dies.
