Columbus Man Indicted for Illegally Dumping Sewage Waste


(COLUMBUS, Ohio)— Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today announced the indictment of Tracy Anderson of Columbus for illegally dumping sewage waste near a Licking County creek.

Anderson was employed by Rent-A-John Portable Sanitation, where he cleaned out porta potties. On or about December 28, 2016, Mr. Anderson parked at the intersection of Lobdell and Battee Roads and purposefully dumped sewage waste from the company truck into a ditch located off the road. The ditch led to a creek. 

The one count felony indictment, Water Pollution, was filed against Anderson in Licking County.  

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. The defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
