Carroll County Man Charged with Illegal
Transportation of Hazardous Waste

Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler today announced that charges have been filed against Christopher Maciejewski, 33, of Barley Drive in Marriottsville for unlawfully transporting ignitable hazardous waste from Tysons Corner Mall in McClean, Virginia to 1450 Grimm Road in Severn, Maryland. The charges allege that Maciejewski transported the material without having a hazardous waste hauler’s certificate which is required by Maryland regulations.

If convicted of the offense, Maciejewski could receive a maximum fine of $25,000 and one year in jail. The filing of charges is merely an accusation of criminal wrongdoing. All defendants, whether corporate or individual, are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

These charges follow a joint investigation conducted by the Environmental Crimes Unit of the Office of the Attorney General, the Maryland Department of the Environment Hazardous Waste Program, the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Maryland State Police. An arraignment date has been set for March 26, 2007 in the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County. In making today’s announcement, Attorney General Gansler thanked Assistant Attorney General Bernard Penner for his work on the case.
