WILKES-BARRE -- Charges were filed Tuesday against the owner of a sewage treatment plant in Lackawanna County.

Frank Colombo, 80, of Dalton was in court in Wilkes-Barre.

Police say Colombo, who owns Glenburn Services Company near Clarks Summit, illegally dumped about 500 gallons of waste into a manhole that connects to a public sewage system in Dickson City.

Authorities also accuse Colombo of submitting inaccurate reports to DEP.

He is charged with tampering with public records or information, unlawful conduct, and sewage discharges.

    I recently just heard this man tried to murder his own son by driving a bulldozer through a building at their business! He deserves the harshest punishment for this violation and many more. I hope justice is finally served for this low life.

    You’re suppose to drive that crap to NJ under the cover of darkness and dump it in the woods.
