Landfill director terminated

Friday, September 14, 2018

According to Mississippi County Judge Terri Brassfield, Mississippi County Landfill director Wil Allen was terminated on Monday.

Allen had been suspended without pay following his arrest by federal agents Thursday, Aug. 30.

Allen and his friend Joe Harlon Hamlett were both arrested on honest series fraud and conspiracy charges for an alleged scheme that allowed Ross Farms Trucking to dump about 70 loads that were never billed, which amounts to about $20,000.

According to Brassfield, Mississippi County Landfill assistant director James Roundtree will continue to oversee the operation of the facility for the time being.
