4th person caught illegally dumping in Penn Hills

Trib Live -A fourth man has been caught illegally dumping in Penn Hills.

Teron Allen, 34, of Verona, will face a maximum fine of $2,000 and clean-up costs for unloading a trailer full of debris on Manilla Street in the municipality’s Lincoln Park neighborhood on July 26, officials said in a news release Monday.

Three others were charged in July after Penn Hills Code Enforcement officials identified them through hidden cameras installed at common illegal dump sites in the area.

Those men — Ricky Stallworth Jr. of Wilkinsburg, Aaron Evans of Pittsburgh and Michael Smith of Carnegie — each face $2,000 fines plus clean-up expenses.

Of the three charged, only Evans has a summary trial scheduled for Aug. 15. Stallworth and Smith have yet to schedule hearings, court records show.

The charges follow the municipality’s beefed-up effort to crack down on those illegally dumping in the municipality.
