A 44-year-old former Sidney resident was sentenced to 33 months in federal prison Monday for disposing of hazardous waste without a permit in 2017.
Edward Miller also received three years of post-release supervision and was ordered by U.S. District Judge Laurie Smith Camp to pay $25,471 in restitution.
The charges against Miller grew out of information gathered by the EPA Criminal Investigation Division.
According to a media release by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Miller loaded a truck and flatbed trailer with chemicals, including pesticides, from a warehouse at Renkoski Property Development in Sidney on Oct. 24, 2017.
Miller, who did not have a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act permit, then disposed of the hazardous waste at three undeveloped sites along South T Road about three miles south of Aurora in Hamilton County.
