RAPID CITY, SD -
New indictments have been handed down over a bribery case involving the Rapid City landfill.
The state attorney general's office and the Pennington County state's attorney announced Thursday that five men involved with the defunct Fish Garbage Service and a former landfill attendant face alternating charges of aggravated grand theft and grand theft, both by obtaining property or services without paying. The landfill attendant, Richard Meidinger, was also indicted on five counts of forgery and another count of aggravated grand theft.
Court documents say the men obtained $100,000 in free trash services from the city landfill between 2003 and early this year. The men were indicted in March on different charges in the case. They've pleaded not guilty.
