FBI raids Mamaroneck garbage carting site, Putnam County executive's office
FBI agents descended on a Mamaroneck garbage carting site and the office of the Putnam County executive Wednesday as part of an ongoing criminal investigation.
Agents say the probe involves Suburban Carting, whose founder was sent to prison in 1998 for his part in trying to control Westchester?s garbage industry. Another company, Automated Waste Disposal, then took over. However, the original company still owns the property and problems with a foul stench from the site still persist.
Agents confirm that the owner of Automated Waste Disposal is a target of the probe. Putnam County Executive Robert Bondi say he has done nothing wrong and was surprised by the raid.
