New York Industrial Supply Owner Pleads Guilty to Illegally Shipping Hazardous Materials on Aircraft
On May 1, 2008, Mark Henry pled guilty to a one–count indictment in U.S. District Court, Brooklyn, New York, to illegally shipping hazardous materials on an aircraft and admitted that he had violated DOT hazardous materials transportation regulations when he offered to ship undeclared hazardous materials aboard the aircraft. Between June 2006 and March 2007, Mr. Henry, owner of shipping companies Taiyi Corporation and Bao An Corporation, offered several shipments for international air transport that contained undeclared, hazardous materials. Mr. Henry falsified several FedEx Air Waybills by indicating the shipments did not contain hazardous materials. He also failed to produce required shipper certifications and properly label and mark outer packages. Sentencing is scheduled for September 4, 2008.
