YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

Two York County men have been charged with illegally transporting and storing hazardous waste in Newberry Township and York Haven, the state attorney general's office announced Thursday.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane identified the defendants as 41-year-old Neal Connelly, the former owner and operator of Neal's Wheels in York Haven, and 24-year-old Daniel Wert.

According to the criminal complaint, Connelly and Wert illegally transported and stored a 55-gallon drum of hazardous waste at Wert's home in Newberry Township.

The drum was sampled and found to contain high levels of benzene, Kane said.

Connelly allegedly stored three 55-gallon drums of hazardous waste at his former business property.

Kane said the drums tested positive for benzene, tetrachloroethylene and lead.
