Three Jersey City Incinerator Authority employees were arrested by authorities this morning as part of a probe into a possible scheme involving workers selling construction debris in exchange for cash, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.
The Jersey City Special Investigations Unit, with the help of the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office, made the arrests at the East Linden Avenue headquarters of the agency this morning, a law enforcement source said.
Officials throughout the county, as well as employees of the agency, were tight-lipped on the situation when questioned by Hudson County View.
However, a law enforcement source, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, said that Clayton Dabney – an assistant executive director of the agency – is a fourth employee being pursued by authorities.
Clayton Dabney is the brother of Oren Dabney, the executive director of the JCIA.
According to their website, the agency is responsible for garbage and recycling removal, street sweeping, demolition, environmental compliance and snow plowing – among other things.
