PRINCE GEORGE’S MAN CONVICTED
FOR HAZARDOUS WASTE VIOLATION

Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Ronald Wayne Wilson, age 45, whose last known address is 1716 Blount Drive, Fort Washington, entered a guilty plea to charges of failing to file with the State anotification report identifying the controlled hazardous substances that were used at his business, Capitol Plating, Inc., located at 7722 Old Alexandria Ferry Road, Clinton, Maryland.

Wilson is the owner of Capitol Plating, which is no longer in business. When the company was evicted from the property on Old Alexandria Ferry Road, Wilson abandoned numerous tanks and drums containing hazardous materials remaining from his electroplating business. Anyone who generates, uses or stores such materials must file a report with the Maryland Department of the Environment. Failure to do so is a misdemeanor which carries a penalty of up to one year in prison and/or a fine of $25,000.

Wilson will be sentenced in September.
