BENNINGTON, Vt.—A Bennington manufacturer of tear gas and pepper spray products is facing charges of illegally storing hazardous waste without a permit.
The U.S. Attorney for Vermont said Wednesday that
Mace and Goodrich also are accused of getting multiple estimates for removing the waste starting in the fall of 2006 but taking no action.
If convicted, Mace and Goodrich each face fines of up to $50,000 for each day the law was violated.
A message left for Goodrich after hours was not immediately returned.
