PIKESVILLE MAN CHARGED WITH ILLEGALLY TRANSPORTING AND DISPOSING OF A HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE

Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Mark Langrehr, 55, of the 200 block of Church Lane in Pikesville, Maryland was indicted by the Baltimore County Grand Jury for illegally transporting and disposing of a controlled hazardous substance.

The indictment alleges that from on or about December 15, 2005 and continuing through on or about January 30, 2006, Langrehr illegally transported a controlled hazardous substance to 1221 Greenwood Road, and disposed of the hazardous substance at that same location. Pursuant to Maryland law, hazardous substances must be transported to and disposed at an authorized controlled hazardous substance facility. There are no such facilities at 1221 Greenwood Road.

Each count is a felony that carries a possible penalty of up to five years in prison and/or a $100,000 fine. A charging document is merely an allegation; all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

This charge follows an investigation conducted by the Environmental Crimes Unit of the Office of the Attorney General, with the assistance of the Emergency Response Division of the Maryland Department of the Environment, and the Maryland State Police. A trial date has not been set.
