Ex-Asbestos Training Head on EPA Wanted List

Tuesday, April 7, 2009

Comment | More

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has added the former president of the largest asbestos removal training school in Massachusetts to its fugitives web site. Albania Deleon failed to appear for her sentencing on March 23 at the Federal District Court, District of Massachusetts, and a warrant has been issued for her arrest for violating post-trial release conditions, according to EPA.

Deleon had been convicted in federal court last November on 28 felony charges related to her role as president of Environmental Compliance Training (ECT), a certified asbestos training provider. Counts included selling certificates from ECT to hundreds of undocumented immigrants who had not taken the course. She sent hundreds of the untrained persons to asbestos demolition sites to perform removal work and paid them under the table. Deleon’s company was shut down in May 2007.

EPA’s Criminal Investigations Division launched its fugitives web site in December 2008 as a tool to help enlist other law enforcement agencies and the public in tracking down fugitives accused of violating environmental laws and evading arrest. For a complete list of the persons on the EPA’s fugitive list, go to http://www.epa.gov/compliance/criminal/fugitives/index.html.

EPA cautions the public not to try to apprehend any of the individuals on the list. Instead, any sightings should be reported through the EPA web site, www.epa.gov/fugitives, or the Criminal Investigation Division office in Boston, MA, at 617-918-2300.
