A San Diego compliance officer is facing two counts of perjury over his testimony during an investigation into illegal dumping.
Operations Safety and Compliance Manager of Diamond Environmental Services Ronald B. Fabor, of San Marcos, testified before a federal grand jury investigating allegations the company had unlawfully discharged trucked portable toilet waste into the municipal sewer systems, according to the U.S. Attorney's office. The action is a violation of federal law.
In his testimony, Fabor allegedly lied about the first time he learned that Diamond employees were dumping sewage into the municipal sewers, instead of taking it to a designated location, according to the U.S. Attorney's office.
He told the Grand Jury he first learned employees were dumping the sewage on the date federal search warrants were executed at Diamond locations across San Diego and San Marcos, according to the U.S. Attorney's office.
Fabor also told the Grand Jury that he had never seen hoses connecting Diamond's tank with portable toilet waste to the sewers, according to the indictment.
According to the indictment, authorities executing a search warrant found a diagram of the toilet waste tank hoses with the words "to the sewer lines."
Fabor will appear in court on June 19 in front of Judge Roger T. Benitez.
He is facing a maximum of five years in prison and/or a fine of $250,000.
