Environment Molester Apprehended

Who knew that the EPA has its own most wanted list?

On Friday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced that U.S. and Mexican agents nabbed Robert Wainwright living the high life south of the border. Wainwright, arrested in Zamora this week, was wanted for allegedly dumping steel mill waste in an Indiana wetland while working as a manager for Sterling Material Services in Lake County.

Based on the EPA’s Wanted poster, Wainwright is a portly 66-year-old with a scar above his left eye. A convicted child molester who was also found guilty of firearms violations in 2007, Wainwright fled the country while the Northern Indiana Environmental Crimes Task Force was investigating his alleged violations of the Clean Water Act.
