Toledoan who dumped asbestos gets probation


A Toledo man who dumped bags of asbestos waste in various locations around Toledo was placed on probation for two years Monday by U.S. District Court Judge James Carr.

Timothy Bayes, 32, pleaded guilty last year to illegal disposal of asbestos. He was hired by John J. Mayer to get rid of trash bags containing the material that had been illegally removed from a Toledo warehouse.

Mayer was sentenced in December to a year in prison and ordered to pay a $2,000 fine after he pleaded guilty to four counts of violating the Clean Air Act.
